Pecan is a wood we don't have up north. We do have a relative, shell bark hickory, though. Never made a stick from it but did some nice small vases on my lathe with it years ago. Shines up nice and took some good details but dulled my tools pretty fast.
I remember the other Randy who posted here always photographed his sticks in front of a huge pecan tree.

Kind of like elm which we burned occasionally when one caught Dutch elm disease. The hydraulic splitter would do it but trying a splitting maul was impossible. We called it "rubber mallet syndrome." That 8 lb head would bounce like rubber.
