the ipe lumber for this table was left over from my brother-in-law’s deck project from a few years back.
I thought it would make an elegant and durable table for outside.

Looks great. Ipe has some great qualities, like taking a beautiful finish. It also has gotten expensive, 9.95/bd ft at Crosscut Hardwoods the other day.

Your table is worth a pretty penny, so to speak.

Great looking outdoor table—you’ll get decades of good use out of it!

Daniel, are you in the Portland area? If so, nice to see another Portlander on LJ’s!

Ipe is a handsome and manly wood, and so is the table. Well done.
