I'm building some Adirondack chairs. I built the sample out of Cedar and got a lot of tear out where I drilled the screw holes close to the edge, I’m also concerned about strength long term. It looks and feels great though. I’m considering Cypress or Mahogany. I’ve worked with Mahogany before so I know what to expect, but I have never worked with Cypress. Based on published characteristics it seems to be similar to poplar. Can someone who has worked with Cypress give me an opinion on how it is to work with?
