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.

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.

bryansong So far I only have the post in the back cemented in. And they will be cut down with that back wall, up hill sides will end up around 30” tall.

Just finished another set of Adirondack chairs

Built these using Cypress and put them on our local craigslist. I don't make much from
these but it helps cover the costs of the hobby...
This chair is made with thick 7/8" thick Cypress and stainless steel carriage bolts and stainless wood screws.
Finished with BLO and Johnsons paste wax.

James, are you anywhere near that heat wave - saw a news report of near 43C for Sydney - that's more unbearable than the cold snap we've had hear in Canada.

DesertRatTom Shop AC unit is a great investment for those of us living in the hot spots - which includes a lot of us.
