Here's a beautiful WIDE plank of "pecky" cypress perfect for a table top, or rustic bar or any other creation where you want something unique and pretty; that few other people have. This slab is very wide; about 17-18" wide x 107" long x about 1" thick. Pecky cypress can be "clear" with no holes or full of holes or somewhere in between. Review the pics, this piece has very nice detail and a natural edge that has not been cut straight or "edged" by a saw, so it flows in and out making for an uneven edge. Can be cut if that is your thing but I would leave it the way it is. Staining it or using tung oil really brings out the beauty and unique features of this wood. I have used it in the interior of my mountain cabin and it is beautiful; everyone loves the look.
River Recovered Cypress, also known as Sinker Cypress or Old Growth Cypress, is primarily found in the rivers and bogs of Southern states. Many of these logs were over 1000 years old when cut down over 200 years ago. These logs sank to the bottom of rivers as they were floated down river to saw mills. Cypress has a natural preservative oil so instead of rotting while underwater they have only become more colorful and beautiful with age; the color of River Recovered Cypress is so widely varied each piece is unique. A very durable wood and one of the highest rot resistant woods; it is rated as being durable to very durable in regards to decay resistance. Cypress has good gluing, nailing, and finishing properties. It is in high demand for historical restorations and new house construction, exterior construction and interior trim. Fine furniture makers prize the wood for its durability and beauty. Also can be used for docks and boat buildings.
