Tigerwood table build

Here's some pictures from the table I threatened to build a while ago out of Tigerwood. The wood was easy to cut, but when drilling the wood would stick to the channel in the bit. It's basically a nakedwhiz design, but I extended one of the top stringers and put a handle on it. I had to use three pieces of stone and feet to get it high enough. I made a couple other errors along the way and still need to get another piece to build some endplates to cover up a mistake (and mount the bottle opener, I was told kegging homebrew was not an excuse not to have the bottle opener). Onto the pics!

    That looks great! I love the look of that wood. I had never heard of tigerwood before your post. Just finished looking at their website and now I want to redo my deck with it.
  • It would make a nice deck. I kind of wish I wouldn't have finished it right away. The wood darkens quickly in the sunlight. The uv inhibitors have kept it on the light side.

    Good to know about the finish. If you don't mind, I may have to copy you on the table. Not the design but with the tigerwood.
  • Nice table, is that wood expensive? I'm also gonna have to elivate my egg,think I'm gonna frame the bricks so they don't show.
  • I think the pic on their site sold me: tigerwood_barb_cart.jpg go for it.

    The wrap around deck on my home was starting to fall off the side of the house a couple of years ago so I started evaluating decking materials. I originally wanted a maintenance free synethetic/vinyl material but was told to look at Tigerwood. I ended up going with it. It's anything but maintenance free but is absolutely gorgeous. I hit it with a UV inhibitor hardwood oil made by Perofin each year.

  • That is really nice
