Hi Eric. Here's a great video to show you the different available options and what they'll look like. Hope it helps :)
I couldn't find hickory listed on any recommended wood to use for outdoor projects. You could try a heavy finish of marine varnish to make the wood more water resistant, but I imagine you'd have to reapply it on a regular basis and unless the project you have in mind is portable furniture that can be moved inside for storage during winter weather or bad storms, I wouldn't use it - more work than it's worth for upkeep and no guarantees it would last for a worthwhile amount of time.
