Cypress Wood Lumber
Cypress Wood Lumber – Cypress wood color tends to be a light, yellowish-brown and its sapwood nearly white. Cypress is a hardwood commonly used for exterior construction, docks, boatbuilding, interior trim, and veneer. Cypress wood is a popular choice in construction applications where decay-resistance is required. Cypress trees that have been attacked by a fungus, creating scattered hollows and pockets of darker wood, are called Pecky Cypress, which is primarily used in decorative applications. Old-growth Cypress is very durable in decay resistance, while wood from younger trees is only rated as moderately durable.
Workability: Sharp cutters and light passes are recommended when working with Cypress Wood Lumber to avoid tear-out. The wood has been reported to have a moderate dulling effect on cutting edges. Cypress has good gluing, nailing, finishing, and paint-holding properties.
