Kingwood

DUE TO CITIES RESTRICTIONS, ROSEWOOD CAN NOT BE SHIPPED INTERNATIONALLY "OUTSIDE OF THE U.S"

Kingwood: Dalbergia congestiflora  Also called Camatillo. The wood is a beautiful royal purple, swirling with scarlet, black, gold, violet and pinks. The wood is incredibly beautiful, with amazing grain patterns and unmatched color. The wood is also mechanically superb, with amazing hardness and density ratings that in many cases beat even those of Desert Ironwood.  Able to take an amazing polish with almost mirror like finish, it is also water proof and wears well. This is my personal favorite wood, though it has recently been CITIES listed and supplies are dwindling. The two main ways are to finish with wax or oil. An oil finish will greatly darken the wood down to a deep purple black, while a wax finish will leave the wood with its right purple and all the contrast, my personal favorite way to finish.

 

Order as many kingwood blocks as you like. They are an amazing wood and a superb value!
