Don't know much about Cypress sinkers, but I do have great amount of experience with River Reclaimed Mahogany. I have created several tables, benches and other furniture pieces using River Reclaimed Mahogany and Bullet Tree.

I can tell you that it's some of the finiest wood you will ever have the previleage of working with. Due to the lack of oxygen, the water preserves the wood and give it an extreme stability and luster like no other.

I would recommend looking at this article by Glen Huey on Belize River Reclaim lumber. http://blogs.popularwoodworking.com/editorsblog/Belizian+Romance.aspx Also you can go to http://store.greenerlumber.com and do take a look at "BULLET TREE". This wood is some of the hardest wood you will ever touch and the look and beauty is "Well you'll want to see for your self".

Good Luck.

Sinkers are generally very old logs, originally felled as virgin timber, and are are very desirable for their grain and color. If you can get it cheaper than SYP, jump at it!
