Kingwood, the wood of Kings, is a true Rosewood. It has rich & regal purple/black color with interesting golden and white sapwood contrast. It is dense (.98 to 1.2 specific gravity) and takes an incredibly high natural polish. This lumber has been carefully kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. There may be a rustic live edge with machete cuts and an occasional check may also be present. Overall, very clean material. This ships to USA only! This piece of lumber has some checks present in the sapwood. There is a void on the opposite face of the numbers, on the left edge.
