Hello all ,
I have a railing job that call for solid ipe 6×6 posts ,I generally use a 4×4 and “wrap” in the wood of choice . I have used (with sucess) soild clear cedar that was dried . Also more commonly available back when . The question is ,is the ipe going to be too hard to mill a miter loc on 5/4 stock ? I don’t own a shaper but do have a 3 1/4 porter cable set up on my Jet table saw combo .
On the off chance that I could locate -(I’m in westchester county ny ) a 6×6 would it end up checking even if all end grain was sealed .
Thank you for any advice ,Chris
