Starting to Work on a screen door for my back porch. Had some cypress wood that I had picked up in Atlanta Ga. to make Adirondack chairs. But had a more pressing project for a screen door. Looking to make it with a craftsman style look. I have some Marin finish for the final coat and will put epoxy on the end grain to discourage rot. will be making the screen panels nest.

I need a new screen door. I like your design. Is this the kind of cypress that stands the weather well?

Yes, Cypress is a good out door wood. It is light like pine and weathers nicely. It can be kind of soft on the long grain. I had 2 or 3 spots were it tour out but nothing bad. It can be kind of splintery until you sand it. have not had a chance to to do much finishing with it. For now i have put 2 coats of Boiled Lend-seed oil on it. I will make notes and update with photos as i get further along.

Have your say...
