This was a fun project and to date one of my favorites. I spent some quality time with my father constructing the frame and building the wall for the fence. At 80 years old I still can’t slow him down. The frame is redwood and the decking and railing is Ipe.

That looks great. Glad to hear dad is still a strong ox.

BTW how many saw blades did you go through cutting that IPE?

I went through a few blades but lucky for me there is a blade sharpening business only thirty minutes from my house.
