I'm going to make a new entrance door in order to keep the leaded glass that
is in the current door. I think I would like to use cypress for the door.
The door will probably be painted after it is made.
I'm in the Gulf Coast area and the winter months can be quite wet.
I am concerned about the door swelling when the seasons change. Also, I
don't know how painted cypress holds up.
Do any of you guys know any reason not to use the cypress?
My alternative is vertical grain fir.
Thanks in advance for any tips you have. :-)
