for the boards that do not have the openings,
bat houses, wood duck boxes, bird houses,
all kinds of really neat outdoor stuff.
for the pecky boards, there is a demand for just what they are.
wall decoration or wainscoting for bars, etc.

I planed down some cypress to 1/4” thick to veneer
the plywood transom on my aluminum boat.

Sounds like it would be beautiful as a wall covering in another house. If it is like I imagine, it would bring a good price on Craigslist for that purpose. That is a lot of material to make boxes or veneer out of all of it..

You can always laminate it to make thicker boards for outdoor furniture, etc.

All good suggestions, thank you!

I’d love to put it up as wall covering! The only problem is that it takes so long to saw that particleboard from the cypress(unless I just repurpose it as is). I think relaming for projects may be the way to go.

Thanks again all!

Cypress is so resistant to weathering I wonder how it would do to submerge it until the particle board gave up in the water. Other than that it sounds like a resaw job and cleanup with an old set of blades in a planer.

Have your say...
