Did you use Penofin Hardwood on the Ipe?

That either has a sealant on it or it is a very new install of Ipe. Without some sort of sealant Ipe will not keep the dark brown for more than a year usually. It will turn a silver color.

Is there a reply to that question?
How did you bend the wood?

What type of stain/oil did you use - I just installed an ipe deck and am tossed with letting it just bleach out or oil it looking for the pros and cons of either

Jose, Check out Sansin's color chart for the stains. from there you can work with the supplier to tweak the stain color to create the effect you're looking for.

Their product is much more durable than many of the other products I've used in the past. I think you'll be happy with the possibilities and the results.

If I have completely treated wood (pine) do I need to stain/oil the deck? Also how long does this particular stain I the deck in the picture last for?

It says "ipe" in the description, a fairly expensive but sustainable hardwood.
