2 x 12 Tigerwood – For an Exotic Bridge, Dock, or Pavilion
2 x 12 Tigerwood is a profile that brings a lot to the table. It’s great when used for projects like garden bridges, arbors, docks, pavilions, and more! This profile is slowly milled down to the net ‘finished’ dimensions of approximately 1 1/2″ thick by 11 1/4″ wide. It is available in lengths from one foot up to twenty feet long.
Tigerwoods gained a reputation for being a wildly exotic wood, thanks large in part to its beautiful grain. Its grain exhibits hues of reddish brown and golden brown with some dark grain accents as well as dark brown and black streaks throughout. This combination of colors and streaks makes each and every Tigerwood board unique, bringing its own character to every project.
Appearances aren’t everything though. Tigerwood is a Brazilian hardwood and it packs a ton of benefits that make it a dependable material. Its dense grain and natural in grain oils combine to make it quite a resilient wood. It is able to resist wood rot, mold, decay, & wood boring insects. All without the use of harsh chemical treatments or preservatives. Tigerwood also has a lifespan of up to and over 30 years. During that lifespan it will be a very low maintenance wood requiring only an occasional surface cleaning to ensure your project stays clean and beautiful.
Tigerwood over time will naturally age to a smooth silvery patina. This process happens naturally due to constant sun exposure and time. With many of our products customers often choose to let their project patina, for reasons such as the low maintenance it offers or just for the rustic appearance patina wood brings. However with Tigerwood we recommend using Ipe Oil to help preserve the bold colors this wood brings to the table. This UV protecting finish helps delay the effects of sun exposure and with an occasional application you can help make you project look freshly installed for years to come.
All of out Tigerwood is gathered from responsibly managed forests. We ensure proper logging techniques are used to promote a healthy sustainable rain forest. We also offer FSC certified wood where the Forest Stewardship Council monitors the wood from logging all the way to installation at your home to certify that the proper steps were taken along the way.
Tigerwood is a beautiful hardwood material that will bring a exotic look to your home or outdoor area.
