Outdoor Sitting Bench with Ipe and White Oak
Project by Jim Binder of the Tempe branch.
Don't be fooled by the no-frills rectangular design, this kind of project requires patience and precision and repetition to pull off. And the two woods, ipe and white oak, come together in an elegant fashion that highlights the color and character of both woods.
Ipe is fine grained and, as you can see, with an oil finish it casts a warm reddish hue. White oak is downright sandy in color but also defined by a nice texture that works well with the ipe.
Two great choices for an exterior project.
Finish: Outdoor oil
