This bench is already made and the pictures are of the actual bench.

The wood for this bench came from a barn in Lutcher, Louisiana on the Mississippi River that was built in the 1930’s from Red Cypress that was recycled from the New Orleans warehouse district when they converted the warehouses from red cypress to brick and steel.

Louisiana natives used red cypress to build because it was bug resistant, it did not rot, and they did not stain or paint anything. Red Cypress comes from tide water areas. To survive these trees developed a resistance to salt water which made the wood have a lot more sap and this ingredient is what makes it bug and rot resistant. It was said that if you could not catch crabs in the water that these trees came from that they wouldn’t use the wood to build, hence the name tide water cypress.

The craftsman has gone to great lengths to find this wood with a documented history and to make sure it was authentic red cypress.

This material is rare even in Louisiana especially the age of this material. We have a limited stock of raw material, so that when it’s gone, we won’t be able to provide any more of these beautiful, unique benches.
