Hickory (Carrya spp.) is a textured wood with visible growth rings. Its colour varies widely in tone, going from golden brown to full-bodied brown. This species also has pronounced knots that accentuate its natural character. It has a Janka hardness rating of 1820. The Solid wood boards including the finishing stages, such as sanding and the finishing, are entirely factory performed under ideal conditions. These pre-varnished boards are ready to be used immediately following their installation. Each board consists entirely of 3/4” thick solid wood; there is, therefore, no gluing or laminating required.
