A deck table, made from salvaged ipe. The wood I had been given 4 years ago and has laid on the shop floor awaiting a project. The table legs were re-cycled from an old junker deck table and spray painted flat black. Put together with stainless steel screws and planed flat with a pre 1900 Bailey #8 jointer plane. Finished with Watco Teak Oil.
Now to await the summer season to enjoy!

That baby is indestructible. Probably heavy as well.

I love it !!! How is the Ipe to work with? I am assuming you used a router to cut the shape, if so did it cut fine? I have been wanting to do some outdoor furniture with Ipe is why ask.

Good looking and durable deck table! Like the legs and the finish. A great addition to the outdoors.

It’s a nice clean table and very attractive.
