7/8” thick from 4/4 rough Cypress. Solid as a rock. If anyone has other plans that have worked well for these styles please let me know! After building these I am going on an outdoor furniture binge. Need a few more for my back yard and always like trying new plans.

Nicely done. It looks comfy too. I’ve never worked with cypress, do you let it weather naturally, or do you put a finish on it?

Very cool outdoor chair! Any reason you picked cypress over cedar or redwood?

Because it’s much stronger and doesn’t peel/fray the way cedar has tended too in the past. You can stain it, seal it, if you want (and actually i may end up throwing something on as extremely humid front porch in NC with no wind is starting to mold up a little!). My supplier had a lot of 4/4 cypress and I couldn’t find the same in cedar or redwood here. The cedar we had available is that barely 3/4 with one side rough. Over the years it always crack, deteriorates on me. I was able to plane the cypress down to a full 7/8 and it is rock sild.
