Ipe

Other Common Names: Brazilian Walnut, Lapacho, Handroanthus


Sourcing Region: Central and South America


Color, Pattern, Texture: Varies from a reddish brown to a more yellowish olive brown or darker blackish brown; sometimes contrasting darker brown/black stripes


Common Uses and Applications: Interior and exterior projects; such as flooring, decking, exterior lumber, veneer, tool handles, and more 
Working Properties: Ipe is a difficult wood to work with, extremely hard and dense, but a large cutting resistance during sawing. Ipe tends to have a pronounced blunting effect on cutting edges, but the wood generally planes smoothly. Also, Ipe can be difficult to glue properly, we recommend surface preparation prior to gluing. At Bennett Crone we offer a wide selection of Amana Tools to help you work with hardwoods.
