How can I tell Oak & Pecan from Hickory?  

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Can anyone please help me out with telling different types of wood? I bought a bag of wood from Home Depot that consists of Hickory, Oak & Pecan, but I only want to use the Oak & Pecan so is there an easy way to tell them apart? Here's the pic I originally 4got. Some1 told me easy to tell by the bark but can take pics of the grain too if need

I'm not sure which is what wood so please help if you can. Can take pics of the grains too but some1 told me can tell by the bark easily too

Burn some, you should be able to tell by the smell. Or post pictures of the 3 different kinds of chunks in the bag and maybe we can ID them for you.

Bottom one looks like Pecan. Kinda soft compared to Oak and Hickory. Whiter color.

Thanks. That's actually just a lil sliver of something on the bottom but I'll flip them over in the morning & take a better pic but thanks.

Top looks like Hickory and the deep barked one in the middle is Oak.The bottom one is  ( I guess ) Pecan. Pecan is similar to Oak as it too has a deep bark , but Flash was right at the color being lighter.....

 

Have fun and ...
