I'd like to make other stuff out of Cypress... BUT can't find a SOURCE of it!!

Very nice work!! Quality work!

Thank you!
Thanks for the kind words Joe.
I get the wood from a local guy in Georgetown TX. Our local Woodcraft store carries it as well.
I ask anywhere from $350 to $400 for a pair of chairs.
If you know anyone in Louisiana or SE Tx you can get this Cypress wood a lot cheaper.
These are Norm Abrams plans that I got from Rockler (I think) a few years ago.
I recommend if you do make these - that you make a template out of hardboard so you can more
easily make them over and over much easier.
There a few youtube videos that have the exact New Yankee Workshop video of how to make these
and this made the process much easier with some great tips.

Default My attempt at a Greee & Greene style end table

My wife mentioned wanting a new end table and that she likes burls. I wanted to incorporate some aspects of the Greene & Greene style. Made this as her birthday present.
