That looks like walnut. Is there a picture of the whole table?

Ipe looks like black walnut but is much much harder.

Beautiful grain features.
A full table shot would be nice.

Ipe doesn’t look anything like walnut. The table looks very nice though, from what I can see, but it isn’t ipe.

This is precisely how the wood that I used looked. I have no idea what to call the figure in the legs, you couldn’t tell there was a grain direction, more like marble. The handle was made from the sap wood, if you could call organic steel that.

That is Walnut and not Ipe. The legs are from a Walnut crotch. I’d rather have a Walnut table anyway for indoors! Beautiful.
