Reclaimed Antique Hickory Description:
The sapwood is very pale and wide, with a dark reddish-brown sapwood. Antique reclaimed hickory has richer tones and imperfections, sometimes with wormholes, making it one of our most stunning antique woods.

Hickory is and was used frequently for tool handles, sporting equipment and high use flooring due to it’s durability and strength.
