Hickory wood is prized for its durability, unique coloring and prominent grain patterns. The heartwood tends to be light to medium brownish-red, while the sapwood is white to cream-colored. Hickory wood boards that feature the tones of the reddish-brown heartwood and the paler sapwood are known as calico hickory, and are highly sought after for their unique appearance. The grain pattern is usually straight, though occasionally wavy, with a coarse texture.
There are 19 wood species of hickory found worldwide, with the majority in North America. Traditionally, hickory has been used for objects that require strength, durability and need to withstand years of use. This includes tool and implement handles, ladder rungs, hockey sticks, tennis rackets, bows, skis, and even fishing rods. Hickory also has good bending properties making it the ideal choice for furniture such as chairs, rockers, stools, and tables.

Our wood products come in several options: Hickory Stick, Rustic Hickory and Traditional Hickory. All panels come in shiplap, square and tongue and groove options, for easy installation.

Hickory wall panels come in a few different tones for you to choose from, each with their own special style. Hickory Stick is a medium reddish-brown with small notes of the lighter cream sapwood. Rustic Hickory is a light-to-medium color that is prominently golden or yellowish-brown. Traditional Hickory is a nice mix of both styles; it features some reddish hues and creamier colors, without the overriding tone of gold. Regardless of which one you choose, these wood panels have warm tones that bring the richness of the great outdoors into your home or business.
