This is a custom cypress dining table made for the Gary family. It is always such a pleasure working for good people.
I made the top out of book matched pieces of cypress cut from 4x6 beams that I have been drying for a couple of years. Book matched means you cut the beam in half and open it like a book creating symmetrical grain patterns.
We finished it with nontoxic shellac in their carport with kids running around asking questions. I really enjoyed hanging out with them and making this beautiful piece of furniture for this beautiful family.
