The Pecky Cypress Furniture Company started out with my curiosity about a local wood called Pecky Cypress. I didn't know anything about it when I moved to Florida from Maine, I just noticed the unique and beautiful application in houses and buildings in the historic areas of south Florida.
I researched the wood and found a mill that supplied the building trades, bought a couple hundred board feet and designed and made a coffee table. I showed it to a local shop owner, they like it and sold a few and now have branched out to make other home furnishings items including picture frames, mirrors and lamps. We also now make some items from cedar and pine as Pecky Cypress becomes increasingly difficult to find.
