I am building a small deck and have chosen ironwood (ipe) as the decking material. I was planning on leaving it unfinished and expecting it to gray over time. However, I read somewhere that it can be sealed if you want to maintain its original color. I am wondering if this is true and if so, if anyone has a product recommedation that would work on ironwood (I live in Minnesota). Could putting a sealer on ruin its natural durablity? Also, does anyone know about the ironwood timber industry? I’m feeling kind of guilty, wondering how and where its cut.
