Tigerwood is also an excellent wood for fine cabinets. Because of its attractive and interesting grain patterns.

Beautiful, long lasting and suitable for so many builds, Tigerwood is a material that professionals love working with and owners enjoy for years after the work is done.

KAYU Tigerwood Profile

Grain: With its fine straight  to medium grain throughout, the risk of distortion of checking is minimal; making it ideally suited for swimming pool or hot tub surroundings

Coloration: The coloration of Tigerwood is one of its greatest characteristics. It is named such because of the striking longitudinal bands running through it, which resemble tiger stripes. Fresh timbered Tigerwood has a Russet or Orange Brown color with medium to Dark Brown stripes. As the wood ages the coloration darkens slightly and the stripes become nearly black.

Strength: It’s a hardwood with 2,160 on the Janka Hardness Scale. Tigerwood is extremely dense and resistant to many problems that pine faces such as wide splits and excessive splintering.

Durability: Known to last up to 50+ years, this wood is very durable and its attributes include water, insect  and rot resistance.
