I built 4 boxes a year ago from Ipe (ironwood) and have finally sanded and finished the last 2 of them. If you want to see the building of these look up the post, Like to sand wood, here on my site. I’m not sure if I will choose Ipe again as it is so hard to sand out the milling and router work but these are so cool, heavy and rock solid. All of the profiling cove and router table work was a lot of fun and seat of the pants design. The same finish as before, 8 coats of wipe on poly but get a perfect coat and not wipe it off followed by hours of automotive polish compound then wax. Hope you like them, My hands are sore from all the buffing!
