Tigerwood is a boldly striped species which has an orange/reddish brown
background with wide dark brownish black striping, which can be compared
to the striping found in “vanilla fudge” ice cream.
Tigerwood, as the name suggests, is a species which exhibits a wide
range of color/striping. The striping can vary from fine lines to bold
“brush strokes”. The background color can range from light tans to
darker orange browns.
Color Change: Tigerwood
exhibits a large degree of color change with a pronounced darkening of
the background under the stripes from an orangey tan to a deep reddish
brown color, which then in turn makes the striping less contrasting and
Dense, straight and smooth grain blended with occassional curly or burl
grain and bold brush stroke grain.
Tigerwood finishes very smoothly, and takes a high polish.
Characteristics: The wood often
has a striking figure caused by irregular dark longitudinal bands.
The wood weathers well and is highly resistant to moisture absorption.
It is also durable and provides great wear-resistance.
