I’ve been working with a bunch of Sinker Cypress lately. Here is a sampling of some pieces.

Mike… the finishes on the boxes are just basic milk paints. Some I use straight out the can but I have also mixed a few to play around with the colors. I just apply them very lightly and then use a wire brush to ugly it up a bit before the final clear sealer.
