I built this modern outdoor dining table out of Ipe 3x3s. Ipe is one of the most difficult woods I’ve worked with, it’s insanely heavy and dense. All of the tools I used are available from Acme Tools, support them here: // I also built this pergola kit from TOJA GRID: //

Hi, Johnny. The table looks awesome. A very neat job with super-solid quality. One question, the bases, where they attach to the slats, one of them is 9 slats wide, leaving the two outside slats uncovered. The other one is 11 slats wide and partially covers the two outside slats too. Why so? I am curious to know. Don't think it's just my eyes. 😉

Great tip on the hole centering jigs Johnny! Nice work!

Jordan Frank says:

Awesome table. I made a gravity kart out of ipe about 5 years ago, leave it outside all year, and it still looks practically new. Ipe is a Beast.

George S says:

Cost of wood for table $500? I wonder what would it cost to build a deck?

ELN calls says:

Spent $500 on wood and $12 on crappy zinc hardware. Should of sprang for grade 8 or brass threaded/washer parts. I have used zinc on similar projects and was sorry for doing so.

Cool!! Would you happen to know where someone could get tons of rip rock? 🙂 Nice backyard!
