I love cypress. I have 1000 square feet of it as flooring in my house. Looks great, but a little soft for flooring. It’s very nice to work with. I need to do more with it. Your table looks great.

Even though I am from Cyprus, cypress here is consider to be a protected species and you cannot get any of it, only the museum can use it for traditional house restoration.
I love that fresh cut smell of it.
Beautiful table, well done.

That’s gorgeous and beefy. Love the top, very pretty grain patterns and the feet are heavy duty. Great work!
