Re:Big Green Egg table
Cypress contains cypresine, which naturally inhibits mold and mildew, and it is a dense tight-grained wood that will not crack or warp. If left alone it will easily last 20-40 years, weathering to a light gray. It can be cared for with an application of linseed oil every 6 months, or it can be stained and sealed.If stained and sealed, the instructions said to wait a few months first.
Even though it will last, most sources nevertheless recommend covering it during the winter.
