Just completed making a bath platform made using Ipe. The platform measures 24” wide and 54” long. I made this to inset into a shower stall to elevate the floor to accommodate a shower wheel chair. I needed a material that would be rot resistant and Ipe fit the bill perfectly. The top slats are secured to 2 running rails underneath with # 8 stainless steel screws, and finished off with 3/4” rubber feet underneath. Not to many problems building other than burning up a few drill bits on all of the pilot holes but all in all I’m pretty happy with the final product. Thanks for checking it out. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
