Can you tell which pair is pecan?
I could say both but I'd be deceiving. The left is the pecan. But I've got some hickory in house that is the same shade and darker than the pecan. Actually I've got some hickory that has a red hue in it. So, you can't go by color. The two woods are nearly indistinguishable and are often even confused at the mill. In my homework on pecan, bitternut pecan is also called bitternut hickory. Go figure that one. Thanks
