Ipe (pronounced “ee-pay”) is a large tropical hardwood tree that
grows abundantly throughout Central and South America. Ipe
wood is prized for its durability, strength, and its natural
resistance to decay, wet conditions, and insect infestation. In
addition to its strength, it has a beautiful dark color and a tight
grain that gives it a very consistent coloring. The physical
hardness of Ipe is remarkable. Ipe lumber can be somewhat
difficult to work with, especially with hand tools.
