Cypress is an easy and forgiving wood to work with. Jay, the builder, commented on how tools interact easily with the wood. This creates less waste per project which means better prices. It is attractive, and takes stains and paints easily and evenly.

Cypress wood is known as porch, patio, and deck furniture. You can use it in your yard, but it needs to dry in sun. It is not recommended to be kept in unprotected areas of heavy shade, such under a tree that blocks all sunlight. And don’t let the legs of your furniture get stuck in the mud. Jay warns that leaving pieces on wet ground for too long can leave the legs vulnerable. Try to store your pieces on a hard, dry surface to ensure the longest life possible.

Cypress furniture doesn’t need to be covered. If your chairs get plenty of sunlight, they can also get plenty wet. The cypress tree grows in and around water. The Mississippi Valley riverbanks are lined with them. The tree has a unique root system that helps it thrive in wet conditions.

You can leave your furniture outside all year long. You might not have room inside for your Adirondack chairs when the weather turns. Jay recommends leaving your furniture on your porch, deck, or patio year-round. The rain, snow, and ice that is so common here in Pittsburgh will add character and depth to the stain or paint color you have chosen.

Bugs do not like the smell of cypress wood. The smell is almost undetectable to human noses, but it repels bugs naturally. Landscapers use cypress mulch, not only because it looks great and does not rot, but because it naturally repels insects. It is also termite proof!

It is American made from American wood. We pride ourselves on selling the very best solid wood furniture made by Amish craftsman in Holmes County, Ohio. You’ll feel proud to own hand built American made outdoor furniture.
