Cypress anyone?

Happened to drive by local river/bridge and noticed a large pile of logs-- the state had come in and unjammed the bridge. A couple looked like cypress-no bark, so took a chance and harvested one log. Now have 20+ trunk feet of most likely cypress. Figured I should get if before some dam fool had a bonfire. There's still more left!
I really like my "hobby"-- was a one man job.

Beautiful wood. I would take some but I'm in WV and the shipping would kill me.

Cypress is little known gem!

It works beautifully, has unbelievable bending properties when cut into thin strips and has a beautiful grain. I used a bunch here:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
