Pecan wood

Has any one ever worked with pecan for furnature/table tops. I have some boards my grandfather and his cousin milled probably 15 years ago. I want to make a table for my folks (to replace Harvey lost stuff). Any recommendation for working with it?

They build furniture out of all kinds of stuff and he’s currently getting a few things done in his new house out of pecan. Check out the site.

Pecan and hickory are sold interchangeably in the lumber industry. On the Janka scale, it is harder than Oak, but not as hard as Mesquite or Ipe. If the boards have been stored correctly, then they should machine well. Plain sawed lumber will have less figure than oak, but more than maple. Raw lumber will be creamy in appearance, and can be finished using traditional stains and varnishes. if you do not know how the material was cured< watch for case hardening as you machine as internal tension can be released causing binding or kick back

Should make a beautiful table. Very hard wood, with more elasticity than hard maple.
