4/4 Rough Cut Tigerwood Lumber

Tigerwood is a very hard, strong, and durable wood that is excellent for indoor and outdoor projects!

You may also recognize this wood as Goncalo Alves. 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. It is commonly used in a variety of larger projects such as furniture, cabinets, and flooring. It is also an excellent choice for building pool cues, archery bows, or knife handles.

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

*Although we try and make sure all the boards include some amount of black striping - often it is not possible on small pieces and instead you will receive the beautiful orange-brown / russett colouring that Tigerwood is known for.

Although these boards have been skipped dress to show colour and grain, they will still require some TLC and additional milling. If you would prefer to have the milling done for you - check out our S4S Tigerwood Lumber.

Rough Cut Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who enjoy working with machinery or hand tools to mill their own boards.

We use this term to describe boards that require additional milling. Rough Cut Lumber have been run through the planer to show the grain however they have not been dressed. You will need to mill both faces and edges. Rough Cut Lumber are available in specific lengths with varying widths.

For example: 4/4 x 6" x 24”

You will receive a board that is just shy of an inch thick, with a width in the range of 5-6”, and is 24” long.


S4S Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who aren’t equipped with the necessary tools to flatten and straighten boards.

The term “surfaced” or "dressed" refers to a piece of wood that has been milled. To achieve the necessary dimensions, we select a larger board to work from. Both faces and edges are then surfaced so you can be assured that the board is flat and straight. These boards are available in specific sizes.

For example: 3/4” x 5-1/4” x 24”
