I'm having a very difficult time finding select grade cypress for my table project. Any help with locating the wood will be greatly appreciated.

    I get all my cypress from friends keeping an eye out for me, contractors and craigslist. The recycled stuff from old barns is much more rot resistant than new growth.

    Here's a craiglist search for Raleigh

    I did try a couple of sources from Craigslist and local ads but everything was not finished. I didn't want to plane it and sand it. I think the lowes lumber will work since I stained it and it's covered by a sunbrella cover. I did screw the 1 x 4's in so replacement will be fairly easy.
