    Hi, I have just been offered some pieces of freshly cut Cypress wood and was wondering if any of the forum members had encountered and or used this wood and if there is any advice about how to dry it out etc.

    Hi Les

    Cypress has a lovely smell. I’ve turned a piece once.

    Same old thing a good sharp tool with light cuts.

    Drying if possible cut the log down through the pith and seal the ends and cross your fingers.

    All the best
