With your scraps, make a child's chair or a bird house as a gift.
Seems you're out in the country. How about a rustic pot plant holder
of some kind? Find an old wheel and build a wheel barrow (pot plant
holder) around it. It'll last about 3 years (raw wood).
Any glue will eventually separate itself from the cypress, but it will
hold for a while, depending on its location relative to weather. A
sealer doesn't seem to help much, either. Old cypress holds up better
than the younger "yellow" cypress.
