Ipe Wood-Stunning in Boat Work - West Wind Hardwood

[simpleviewer gallery_id=”11″]

This is an older boat, which my friend decided to restore. The old woodwork was taken out and each piece was replicated with templates, and Ipe has been installed. I can tell you the Ipe is stunning in boat work, however, it is very hard on the steel tools, like chisels and hand planes. Carbide power tools have no trouble at all with it. The wear on the steel tools is overwhelmed by the beauty, strength and value of Ipe.
