Ipe (wood) on a roaster...
seehad
I was watching Life After People on the History channel and they were talking about the wood used on the boardwalk in Atlantic City. They said the Ipe wood has the same fire resistant rating as concrete. That got me thinking about replacing the metal and plastic lid on the breadmaker with a piece of ipe with the hole in the middle to fit the heatgun.
Thoughts?

I thought that concrete shatters when exposed to heat

Plus you don't know if heat will release any natural toxins in the IPE wood
It must have some naturally occurring inhibitors present

Just something to ponder B)

I've never heard of Ipe wood. Generally wood catches fire around 450F, so you ought to thoroughly research it first.

Then again, I used to have a 2x8 lined on the underneath with aluminum flashing that worked well as a BM lid.
