    Cypress Picklewood: A Case Study in Versatility

    Mar 23, 2015

    1" Cypress Picklewood Lumber, mix of weathered and band-sawn faces

    Trestlewood customers tend to like "unique."  Some of you prefer variation and contrast to consistency.  We love the challenge of finding ways to use a single source of reclaimed wood to produce multiple products and looks.  Cypress Picklewood should keep us all happy. 

    Trestlewood has many truckloads of 1.5 - 3" thick weathered Cypress Picklewood (widths are primarily 3-7"; lengths are mostly up to 7'.)  We often cut this as-is lumber into 1" (nominal) lumber and thin skins or middles. Most of the 1" lumber we produce has one weathered face and one band-sawn face.  This gives you the option of featuring either the weathered face or the fresh-sawn face in your application.  If you are looking to create siding (or another finished product) with especially distinctive/stunning contrast, you might want to consider using a combination of weathered and fresh-sawn faces.  

    Cypress Picklewood is available for purchase in any of the following looks/configurations:


    1" Lumber With 1 Weathered Face and 1 Band-Sawn Face (kiln-dried and non-kiln-dried lumber available)


    1" Cypress Picklewood Lumber, weathered face up

    1" Cypress Picklewood Lumber, mix of weathered and band-sawn faces


    As-Is Weathered Lumber (1.5 - 3" Thick)




    Thin (1/4 - 1/2") Band-Sawn Middles




    Smooth T&G Flooring
