I just googled and found your posting. The wood looks kind of like the color
of redwood. I have seen ipe decks and they are grey (with age). Does ipe
look like that in your pictures when it is new or did you apply some kind of
finish? Your project looks great by the way!
There's a good deal of color variation in ipe. I have some cabinet grade
Argentinian ipe whose appearance is almost indistinguishable from black
walnut--in fact it is sometimes sold as "Brazilian Walnut".
Sorry for late response - I've been on the road.
I hit it with a coat of Messimers after the buildout. Lots of vendors
reccommend you oil it at least once, then let it grey out if you don't
want to oil it every year.
