2 x 6 Tigerwood
2 x 6 Tigerwood – Ideal for Structural Elements
Perfect for railings, gazebo rafters, studs, outdoor furniture and more, 2 x 6 Tigerwood is a versatile wood that will bring an exotic feel to any project you use it for. This profile is slowly milled in our mills across the country down to the net ‘finished’ dimensions of approximately 1 1/2″ thick by 5 1/2″ wide. It is available in lengths from four feet long up to twenty feet long.
Tigerwood is known for it’s striking appearance. It’s grain displays hues of reddish brown and golden brown, with some dark grain accents and dark brown and black streaks throughout. This wild combination of color and patterns makes each board unique and brings an exotic character to any home or outdoor area.
Looks aren’t the only good thing Tigerwood has going for it. Being a Brazilian hardwood Tigerwood has many benefits inherent in its dense grain and natural in grain oils. It is capable of warding off mold, decay, wood rot, and wood boring insects! All without the use of harsh chemical treatments or preservatives. It has a long lifespan of up to and over 30 years, making Tigerwood a material you won’t have to worry about replacing for decades to come. During that lifespan it will also be a very low maintenance wood, requiring only an occasional surface cleaning to ensure that your deck stays clean and beautiful for years to come.
Over time and with constant sun exposure Tigerwood will naturally patina. Many customers choose to let their decks patina as it requires almost no maintenance. However to keep those beautiful colors Tigerwood brings to the table an occasional application of Ipe Oil will do wonders. This UV protector helps fend off the effects of sun exposure and lock those stunning colors in, making your deck look freshly installed for years to come.
Every piece of Tigerwood we sell comes from a sustainable source. Our wood is responsibly harvested from well managed forests following every standard for safe logging practices.

There is nothing quite like the look that Tigerwood provides and it’s great durability makes it a great decking option.
