Description

 Hickory

Tougher than nails, and versatile too

Because he fought tenaciously at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815, General Andrew Jackson’s soldiers nicknamed him Old Hickory. His Tennesseans knew the wood well enough to make that comparison because it grew abundantly in their state. If something had to be tough and strong, they made it of hickory–from ax, hammer, pick, and shovel handles to wagon spokes, hitch trees, and rims. Worked green, it became chairs.

The Choctaws and other Indians of the lower Mississippi River Valley had long used hickory for bows and baskets, but they also drew on its sap for sweet syrup and sugar and its nuts for cakes and meal. The pioneers who followed Davy Crockett valued hickory as firewood, too. (It produces 24 million Btus per cord, abut the same output as 200 gallons of No. 2 fuel oil.) They also smoked ham and bacon with hickory.Our craftsman have been working with this wood for years and have produced many heirloom pieces

    Another quality piece from Carriage House Furnishings. Solid well built end table. Pictures do not do it justice – seeing is believing. Visiting Carriage House in person is a must!!!! I purchased several items on my trip down and Elmer took the utmost care in wrapping them up and loading them in my truck for the trip home. Thank you Elmer :0)

    We bought a pair to go with our queen bed. They are larger than we anticipated, which was a pleasant surprise. We love the hickory grain and the drawer hardware is top quality.
