Kingwood, Dalbergia caerensis, is a rare rosewood with violet/purple and light black streaks. From the Atlantic forest in Brazil, Kingwood has been the wood of Kings for hundreds of years in France, England, and Europe. Used extensively for furniture, cabinets, instruments, and fine articles, it has graced the halls of many fine, historical locations. The wood turns well and takes a high natural polish with little effort. This is exceptionally rare stock with fabulous color and fine violet lines. We have never had Kingwood that was of this high a quality! Additionally, there are exceptionally large pieces available. Our stock is generally surfaced on two sides and has air dried for 1 year. It has lost half or more if it’s original moisture. We will more than likely not be able to replace this inventory so for the best selection shop now! Once it’s gone, it’s gone!
