I created this table because I had access to a free source for Ipe wood. I decided to build a table with the Ipe wood because it is good for indoor and outdoor use. It built in a rustic and raw style with exposed hardware. The surface is extremely durable and it can seat up to 8 people, but it can also be used as a desk. The legs came from a G# note of a 100 year-old pipe organ from a church on Long Island that was demolished. This one measures 8ft by 3ft.
