Kingwood Hardwood Lumber

Kingwood (Dalbergia cearensis), is considered a true rosewood. Kingwood is among the densest and strongest of all rosewoods.

  • Very durable in decay resistance
  • Commonly used for Inlays, veneers, tool handles, and other small turned and/or specialty items
  • Distinct, rosewood-like odour when being worked
Colour/Appearance A dark purplish or reddish brown with darker black streaks. Sapwood is a pale yellow.
Grain/Texture Grain is usually straight; occasionally interlocked. Fine, uniform texture and a high natural luster.
Workability Tends to be difficult to work due to its high density. Kingwood has a moderate blunting effect on cutters, and tearout can occur during planing if interlocked grain is present. Can be difficult to glue due to natural oils and high density. Turns very well and takes a high polish.
