Reclaimed Cypress Table Bradenton ,Sarasota Florida.

Now this is strange .. I have wide Cypress boards that i rip in half ,flatten  then glue back together to keep the  same figure from original board . For this fabrication i needed  to glue-up 8 boards . I first jointed one edge then sawed other side and again  jointed that  edge ..I planned on having up to extra inch in total glued up (rough)width then rip to the 42″ final width designed for this  Cypress Table .

Each board was a little different in width . i knew this from sawing ..but was not concerned keeping track of each board .. .. When i glued them  all up (in photo ) i put a tape measure to the width of table Top , at both ends, to find out both ends were exactly 42″ …i doubt that ever happens to this Woodworker again .

Cypress Sliding Driveway Gate

This  17 foot  Cypress Gate Panel ,which will be married to aluminum frame for automation, is going to  Miami,  Florida area . I treat all my outdoor wood products with special wood stabilizer that greatly improves performance over the years ..I pride myself on the ‘process’ for making .. To illustrate that, look at photo of end of gate ,its perfectly balanced and resting on just about 2 inch thick bottom rail without any supports and with a fan blowing …without risk ,no adventure ..

Cypress Wood White Wash Wall

Completed this White Wash Wall last week . The client wanted the Wood Wall as simple as possible ,no end caps or molding to cover up ends and edges .  Made sure each Cypress board was at the ideal moisture content  and with precision  cutting it came out nice . ..( I allowed for minimal shrinkage ). Client is very happy ,so am i .
