This is something I have wanted to do for a long time. It was a pleasure to finally build it. Looking for someone who can appreciate it and enjoy its many years of durability.

Very nice. How did you get the colors?

The longer Cypress is buried in the mud-water the darker it becomes. The darkest wood has been buried for at least 150 years. It has also been dated between 600-1600 years old. The grain is tight
That is what I am told by the people who recover it. They have been doing recovery for 30+ years.
Thanks for the comment.

Does this make it old growth or old soak wood?
