My old man dropped by and showed me this stuff called Ipe. He bought 35K worth to do a deck for a client. He brought me a couple cut-offs and at first glance I thought it was weathered cocobolo, but apparently its the primo stuff for decks and outdoor furniture. It is unreal solid and it has a fire rating equivalent to steel and concrete!!

I'm in the mood to build an outdoor prep table, so I'm gonna give this stuff a whirl. Just thought I'd mention it.

That's good stuff. When we were in Venezuela we saw a lot of it used in the marine industry for boat finishing. I would love to get my hands on some of that.

One thing you may want to consider (or not) is paint. There are some great paints that will give protection from the elements as well as enhance the area you'll be using your cooker with color rather than the usual wood stains.

Heard of it - crazy expensive like Teak - if I was using wood like that it'd be a pro doing the building, not me Would be great to have a deck and furniture made out of Ipe or Teak though - definitely some high end stuff...

I love cedar.

I'd check with some of your local lumber yards. I'd bet you could find more cedar options. I picked up everything I needed at our local Home Depot (including 2x4 cedar). If you can't find what you are looking for in terms of dimensions from the local big box stores or for the local lumber yards then see if your local Home Depot can get what you want from another store. I know they can place store to store orders and will ship it to your local store free of charge.
