I built an ipe deck and i’m finishing up the last few details on the railings now.
I have a 45 degree angle between 2 posts of the rail. The railing uses stainless steel cable instead of wood to fill in the open area. The cable will be under tension and I want to support the posts where the cable goes to a 45 degree angle. My plan is to put a couple of pieces of ipe below the top handrail mitered so that they sit across the inside corner of each post to keep them from collapsing toward each other.
I plan to use screws to attach 2 or 3 boards, face to face, which will span between the posts. I’m thinking that gluing and screwing them together would be better. Knowing that ipe has some unique properties, can anybody recommend a good glue to use to put them together, or a glue that you have tried that you know won’t work?
Thanks for your ideas.
