A friend bought a bunch of cyprus (1x12) at the auction of a local old
mansion. It came from the ceiling of a long hallway. He's offered it to me
(for what he paid) but I haven't decided on a good app for it. Any
suggestions??? I really prefer the darker woods: mahogany, cherry and
walnut but I'm open to ideas.
Yeah, Norm uses it for his outdoor chairs and tables. I think he made a
plant stand or something too.
If I recall correctly, it's so full of oil he cleans cleans the joints with
mineral spirits or something before he glues it up.
Let's not confuse a country(Cyprus) with the really
pretty wood called cypress.
It can be used for anlmost any application and is
favored for outdoor stuff.
Cypress is still readily available and is fairly cheap
by wood standards. It is soft and will chip quite
It takes nails,screws,glue and paint quite well.
Go to Google and search on "cypress wood"
