  1. Hello, looking either black walnut or ambrosia maple boards but must be 1 1/2 or 2 inch thick to be used for table top. Do you carry any boards with this thickness ? thank you

  2. I have a 17′-0″ x 17′-0″ Nominal Deck that will extend beyond my Garage on 1-Side with the whole Deck Cantilevered and on 6″ x 6″ Posts maybe 4′-4 1/2″ above the Ground, with a 10′-0″ Long Patio Door in a Sun Room. I will only have 1-set of Stairs going Down to Ground Level with 1-Step down to a Landing with a Side Door in my Garage Opening onto this Landing, and then 3-4 Steps down to the Ground. I have Framed this Deck using 2″ x 12″ Douglas Fir, Treated and would like to use 5-1/2″ Brazilian Walnut for my Decking with 6″ – 6-1/2″ Square Newel Posts with a Top Rail and Bottom Rail running only on 3-Sides with Metal Wrought Iron Rods for Balusters. I would like the Deck Boards to be Grooved so I can use Hidden Clips from under the Deck. I will then Apply Ipe Oil to the Deck Boards and would like to Skirt the Deck in Brazilian Hardwood just to cover the Framing.

    My problem is I live in Minneapolis, and would like to get this Deck built and Stained before the Temperature drops below 50-degrees, but I am having trouble finding Deck Builders who have opening time left. My local Lumber Yard is trying to sell me their Hardwood and says their Brazilian Hardwood has been Dried and will not Warp like they think yours will?

    My zip code is 55438- Can you Quote me Materials and Address my Concerns??

    Thank You,

  4. We live by the ocean. Can we use solid tiger wood for flooring? Will that create expansion and contraction issue? Or is engineered tiger wood work better?


  5. I would like to know if you have any brick and mortar stores in MIchigan where I could go to pick up Ipe If not how do you ship?
