Topic tags/keywords: question biscuit joiner finishing joining rustic


I have a couple of old pecky cypress boards that I want to use to make end tables. Does anyone out there have any experience working with type of wood? The boards have a lot of worm holes and tracks (not sure what you would call them). I also have questions as to how to finish the wood.

Thanks, Jim

cypress is pretty much like working wit pine its a soft wood it wont stain worth a crap but wit a little boiled linseed on it the wood has a nice warm look to it
