Jim, thanks for your reply. Personally, I've not worked with Pecan lumber, but it is often available from local sawmills. Many hardwood lumber vendors make no separation between Pecan and other forms of Hickory, of which Walnut is also in the same family of trees. My wife's dad built a huge house in Roswell, GA. He owned and managed a furniture business (Roswell Seating Company - which made church furniture) for over 55 years. There's a "great room" in that house that is completely encased in Pecan Raised Panel Walls - up to a 24 foot ceiling height. The wood is beautiful. He also built his own kitchen and laundry room cabinets with Pecan. I hope to one day have a project that requires it. It is a quite heavy lumber, but most people who have worked with it speak very highly of it.
OPG3 Tweak everything!
