We do many board feet of Curly-Tiger Maple a year. We have one vendor that calls it Curly and another that calls it Tiger and I found out recently that they both get it from the same supplier. I cannot tell any difference, looks just alike, works the same, smells the same, the splinters hurt the same so I’ll tell you what I was told one time by an inspector. Call it what you want it’s the same thing some boards just have more profound curl than the other boards.
