So after a long time I am finally finished my first project with the wood I received for the school I work at! Its a large coffee table that my kids got at before I could take a nice picture so there are definitely some smudges on it from little hands haha.

It is made out of Ipe. which is very heavy and very dense.. quite difficult to work with, but I think it looks great finished. And I can also take this outside and use it there without having to worry about the weather damaging it which is definitely an added bonus! it is 3’x4’ (just under actually but close enough)

Good looking table. It looks like it fits the space nicely.

yeah if its solid ipe it will take all the pounding your kids can give it.if the wood wasnt so heavy id use it for a lot more projects.i made my patio furniture with it and it holds up well to the weather,just a fresh coat of oil each spring and it looks brand new.nice looking table.

Ipe – so when are you placing the order for new blades and drill bits ? Really like the herringbone layout instead of gluing up planks – highlights more of the grain and subtle color in the wood.

Yeah they definitely are hard on anything that is supposed to cut. If you get carbide tipped stuff it is much better though.
