We recently completed a very nice custom horizontal wood fence and matching door project here in Los Angeles, over in the Palisades. They needed it to be two sided to match the other similarly built horizontal wood fences in their condominium/townhouse complex. It was for privacy for their back yard/patio area, from the common area. It had to be very nice, strong and beautiful.

They wanted a custom Ipe horizontal wood fence, two-sided with staggered elevation horizontal planks for privacy. No problem except for one thing, the budget. Not a problem, why not a custom Mahogany horizontal wood fence instead? Currently (the prices of different woods fluctuate and over time usually tend to increase with inflation like everything else) Mahogany is less expensive than Ipe. Mahogany is strong and beautiful like Ipe and even more famous. But nowadays Ipe horizontal wood fences are a rage and a fad. I say why not a Mahogany horizontal wood fence? Mahogany is just as beautiful, some people say it looks better than Ipe! Mahogany is also an extremely durable hardwood, plus it’s more famous (well known would be a better term here in this context, but since this is Hollywood I’m using the term famous).

You can see the weathered Ipe walking deck wood planks. Unfortunately the builder did a poor job inappropriately framing below for those planks, gluing thin 1×2 Ipe wood strips to the concrete below, then using 1&5/8″ screws. Welcome to LA, short cuts and crappy construction examples are easy to find in this city.

They only wanted the inside stained so we obliged. It’s a very, very nice condominium/townhouse complex in the Palisades here in LA, so they of course chose us to build their custom Mahogany horizontal wood fence and matching door project to build it right. So we did.

The stain is still wet, we’re in the clean-up phase so I decided to snap a few quick photos before I forget, trying to keep as much of the tools and mess as possible out of the frames while still showing off our recent build.

“Oh! Oh! Ipe horizontal wood fence! Yeah, that’s what I want! Baby, we HAVE to get an Ipe horizontal wood fence! The Kardashians might come over!” Uh, really? Why not a Mahogany horizontal wood fence? Lookie here, ain’t it pretty? Make them neighbors, guests and friends jealous ’cause your Mahogany horizontal wood fence looks even better than their Ipe horizontal wood fence!! And when they inquire “Oh, is that Ipe?”, calmly and proudly you answer “No it’s actually Mahogany”. Continuing you elaborate a little “Yeah, I just like the grain characteristics of the Mahogany better than Ipe. To me it’s a finer wood”.

    Because ipe is an extremely dense wood, it is virtually rot proof, fire resistant and impervious to animal and insect damage. A high-quality custom ipe fence in a 20-by-30-foot backyard takes two weeks to build, Terry said.
