I have used cypress for all of the wood when I built on my screened in porch some 30 odd years ago. In those days $150 bought all of the wood I needed and that my 3/4 ton Suburban could carry. It was sticking 6' out the back. I used 4x4, 2x12, 2x6, 1x4 and 1x10. All rough cut. Left it rough cut.
With age it turns a nice sliver/grey.
I have never tried to make any furniture out of it. From what I can see of its characteristics it probably would be good for a project to fit a rustic motif.
