2x8 deck boards
The Ipe 2x8 deck board. Often used as the stair tread on stairs. The 2x8 deck board offers a flat stable and sturdy surface that's wide enough for most stairway applications. Some architects prefer the 2x12 or 2x10 for stair treads though. The 2x8 is often used as a riser on stairs as well. The part you did know: 2x8's are used as the "skirting" or "ribbon" on the the deck. the part you didn't know: Is that Ipe is an excellent choise for the skirting because it looks so great.
Be sure to have plenty of 2x8's, 2x10's and 2x12's in your inventory. Building stairs can sometimes slow down a deck builder. If he screws up his cuts or measuring he's going to need a new board, and he's not going to want to wait for it to be ordered and delivered. He's going to want to put it in his truck and drive back to the job site so he can finish his stairs, and finish his deck. Do you want to give him what he wants?
