That reclaimed cypress I mentioned earlier had to be tablesaw cut to 6 inch widths, cleaned of metal, then jointed and planed before I could use it. Then I cut it to 1 1/2 inch widths and face glued them for the table top. The wood probably dated to 1900 or before, but underneath the weathered exterior was good looking cypress. It was a lot of work. With weathered Oak, I’d probably rip it to jointer width, clean it up, joint it, plane it, and build with it. I’d lose the weathered look, but that’s my preference.
