I would like the expansion characteristics of the two woods be similar and have thought about this. I’m having trouble finding that info for ipe and bubinga. Plus, I don’t know if bubinga is a good wood for being outside. I’m considering using it because I have some and it’s a nice looking wood.

I did consider making the tabletop with gaps like a picnic table or deck. I don’t think that would look as good, but it may be the better option. I’ll model it on my computer and see how it looks.
