I’ve been making a lot of projects lately out of cypress, primarily because of its relatively low cost compared to my favorite wood, white oak. I have been meaning to try my hand at the cowboy sideboard that was a featured New Yankee Workshop project not too long ago and a perfect project to make from cypress. It was modeled after a Molesworth sideboard that was shown in a resort in Wyoming. I really liked the design except I wanted it to look even more rustic than it did. The Molesworth only had exposed logs in the feet. I wanted the entire frame to be logs. After I started I decided not to do the entire frame with logs, but instead to do the legs running the entire vertical length of the piece.
