This photo and those that follow show the clean lines and elegant appearance of hickory heart lumber. There is no lighter sapwood in this kitchen (sapwood is a light blonde color always present in "calico hickory."  It is a beautiful golden brown.

There is a double rollout susan in the far blind corner.

The little shaker table in the foreground was made from the same lumber as the kitchen. It slides neatly under the counter top overhang.
