This little stool was constructed from Ipe, using through mortise and tenon joinery. I inlaid the top and the stretcher with Curly maple for beauty. For the pegs through the stretcher I created a maple sandwich with ipe as the bread. This is finished with Formby’s high gloss tung oil finish.

A great design and the curving of the maple to fit around the ends is a great design. It really sets it off.

Cool beans! So what are the special considerations working with Ipe? I heard that it’s hard on the tools and tricky to use glue on.

Absolutely beautiful and it looks strong enough to hold even me :-)). Nice use of contrasting woods and design.
