Tigerwood

Botanical Name:

Astronium, Spp

Origin:

Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala, Mexico.

Also known as: 

Goncalo Alves, Muiracatiara (Brazil),

Tigerwood is a boldly striped wood, which has an orangish/reddish brown background with wide dark brown/black striping. The striping can vary from fine lines to bold "brush strokes". The background color can range from light tans to darker orange browns. Tigerwood exhibits a large degree of color change with a pronounced darkening of the background under the stripes from an orangey tan to a deep reddish brown color, which then in turn makes the striping less contrasting and subtler. It is a tight grained very durable wood.
