Appearance

The heartwood is a nice medium reddish brown with dark brown or black streaking. Tigerwood darkens with age and typically has a wavy or interlocked grain.

Workability

Despite its high density, this wood tends to work well with both hand tools and machines. Like other woods, areas of figure or irregular grain can lead to tearout. Tigerwood is extremely water resistant making it difficult to glue with water-based adhesives.

Uses

Commonly used on specialty items like pool cues, archery bows and knife handles, it also gets used for furniture, cabinets and flooring.

Additional Comments

Tigerwood has excellent weathering and rot resistant properties making it a good candidate for outdoor furniture.
