rummaging through my lumbersource's stash, and came across some ipe. it is quite common for porch and patio decks, but strikes me as quite dense and hard and may be a candidate for fretboards. the board i saw has wonderful brownish, orangish coloring like a deep rosewood. Has anybody tried to use if for fretboards? I may be interested in getting a test piece and resawing it if someone wants a go at it. anybody familiar with it? it has a specific gravity rating of .85-.97 and density is reported to be 66-77 pcf. thanks.
