Backyard Ipe Deck

Deck I built for CityDecksInc. in the Art Museum area of Philly. The deck and privacy walls are made using Ipe, a very dense Brazilian walnut. Ipe has the same fire rating as concrete and steel, and is so dense it does not float in water. It is time consuming to work, and burns through blades and bits, but the results are beautiful and extremely durable.
