I’m looking to build a speaker cabinet for my bass guitar and I have all these leftover short lengths of ipe. I glued up the panels and am ready to sand them and I wonder what type of finish I can apply to the ipe. I test sanded a cut off with 220 and it feels like glass. I just wonder how the oil in the wood will react with certain finishes. I think it’s probably easier to ask here than play the mad scientist.
