Here is a picture of some ipe. It’s a picture frame that I made using ipe with redwood & ipe with black walnut stain in that order starting from the outside of the frame. Finish is satin poly. The ipe is brutal on the cutters. Have to go slow as possible and still continue to make the cut. Three picture frames, 12 miter corners melted my 1/4 sheet sander.
