    Ipe has a lot of oils in it and therefore does not glue together well. As you will not the treads in the picture are individual pieces of wood and not glued together as a normal tread. This is exterior so it works great to let water run through as well. It can be used indoors and glued but the process is very labor intensive so it costs a lot more to purchase for inside use. It is a beautiful wood though. Indoor wood similar to the look of this Ipe is Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry). Very very hard wood and much easier to glue.
