I have worked a lot of Cypress over the years. I hand carve all our outdoor signs out of Cypress. My home was built in 1974 of solid Cypress, studs, floor joist, beams that run the complete length of my home, ceiling,more or less everything except the finished floors and cabinets. We consider Cypress to unstable a wood to build kitchen cabinets with especially raised panel doors. Two things that do not like Cypress…water and bugs. My house has never had an exterminator in it and only on occasion do we see a bug crawling across the floor. I have no rot anywhere and it’s never had any kind of finish applied to it. I also build wood counter tops with Cypress, play with it a little and you would be surprised how you can stain or dye it and make the grain pop in your face and put a smile on your face.
