"Pecky Cypress refers to cypress lumber, whether tidewater or sinker, that has holes throughout it. It is rare, since it only occurs in occasional logs, and cannot be discovered until the log is cut. It only forms from the inside out in a circular pattern following the tree's rings. When milled, the pattern of pecky holes is random, and only lumber cut from the inside of the log will contain the pecky. Like all cypress, pecky is beautiful and durable. It has all the properties of regular cypress, including rot resistance and insect resistance."
This also makes it very expensive... hence the no painting.
Now getting the pictures actually hung, straight, aligned and perfectly evenly spaced, let's just say, it took a little longer than expected and the T-squares and levels were brought out because someone didn't trust my eye...
They made it up and look perfect. I hope Nick and Abby enjoy their weekend in the Man Cave. We are off to test out Travis' new crawfish boiler than two awesome girls bought him for his birthday, and to get this Memorial Weekend started. Hopefully I will have a picture of me and Keith Urban to post next time :)
