Anyone know a mail order supplier that carries rough 12/4 or larger cypress?

Closest my two place come is 8/4 . Where are you located , maybe you’ll have luck with a small local sawmill .

Yeah, local suppliers carry 8/4 & under. I’m in Kansas city, so no luck on local sawyers. Even all the Internet lumber yards I can find don’t carry that thick of stock. Beginning to lose hope. I need something for a garden bench & the only thing I can find locally in that thickness that’s weather resistant is cedar & teak. Teak is out of the budget & cedar doesn’t seem like a good choice either. What do y’all think?

I know that 12/4 white oak is used on truck and trailer beds because it holds up to the elements well. You might try a local trailer repair place.

Thanks for the suggestion. Think I may end up just using faux wood decking(trex). Either that or I’ll just glue up some 8/4 cypress & try to hide the glueline.
