Monterey Cypress

 

 

BSMontereyCypressbyBobDesmond530Cupressus macrocarpa or Cupressus macnabiana

Monterey Cypress is a close cousin to Spanish Cypress. The wood has a pinkish hue, but the overall appearance is creamy. Monterey is a good alternative to Spanish Cypress which has become increasingly difficult to get. It's a little stronger than Spanish Cypress, works nicely, glues and finishes well, and from all reports is indistinguishable from Spanish Cypress in terms of sound production.

First grade Monterey Cypress has even color and tight grain, and second grade has more color variations and wider grain.

NOTE: We have listed the Monterey Cypress tops here for those who wish to have matching tops, backs and sides.
