Nice design Jeff. Is that some of the Cypress? It looks really tight.

Yeah, 60s and 70s Woooooot!

yep...cypress.

it's interesting to work with....one time Will described it as like carving like plywood, and that's actually a fairly accurate assessment.

but it lasts longer than palm outside so I'm experimenting more with it...

anyway, back to work...

I bet that cypress is hard to carve. I probably wouldn't stand a chances with my harbor freight chisels. Lol. Looking forward to seeing some more progress pics
