Cypress is a softwood from the southeastern section of the United States.  It boasts a light to yellowish brown color with a straight grain and medium to coarse texture.  While all species are durable, the older growth trees are rated as very durable.   It machines easily, but tear out can be prevalent with dull cutters.  Cypress has been used for outdoor siding, wall and ceiling paneling, and any other project that requires a high durability and easy workability.  It has also seen extensive use in boat building and dockwork.  From time to time we get a subspecies known as pecky cypress which is full of holes caused by a fungal attack on the tree. These can make some truly stunning results when coupled with colored epoxy resins.  Cypress is sold with either #2 (knotty) or FAS (clear) grading.  With a Janka hardness of 510, and a weight per board foot of 2.2 pounds, cypress is one of the lightest most durable wood species on the market.
