Brazil SawmillOur second sawmill line at our mill in Brazil is now up and running. Cutting FSC certified Tigerwood logs for decking, flooring, and deck tiles. This line is smaller but is fully rebuilt and cutting some very accurate rough sawn blanks. Having good rough sawn lumber can effect the moisture consistency when kiln drying and the quality of the final product. Some big Tigerwood logs are lined up for live edge table slabs next week.

Ipe Decking – The Only Maintenance Free Decking

Ipe (Brazilian Walnut) is one of the most dense hardwood materials available today, it is so dense that it actually sinks when placed in water. This makes Ipe the absolute best choice for your outdoor projects like decking and patio furniture.

Because Ipe is so dense and hard it’s naturally resistant to mold, mildew and termites. It also does not contain any knots and does not splinter which makes it an excellent surface to walk on. All these excellent features make ipe decking the only decking material that can last 40 years or more with no maintenance, no pressure washing, and no chemicals applied to the ipe.
