KINGWOOD

Dalbergia cearensis

THE TIMBER:
Streaked with varying lighter and darker lines of golden yellow, kikngwood timber is a rich, violet-brown color sometimes with shades almost to black. The scent is fragrant, but scarcely noticeable in dry material. It has a bright luster with a fine, uniform texture, although the dark layers are slightly harder than the others. It is hard and strong, but brittle. The taste is not distinct.

WORKABILITY:
The wood is not difficult to work with sharp tools, finishing to an exceptionally smooth surface with a natural waxy polish. When first used, this is a beautiful wood and becomes more so as it tones with age, developing a metallic sheen. It is well named, as it is truly the wood of kings.

USES:
Because of the small size of the kingwood tree, the wood has always been restricted to the use of veneer in inlays and marquetry with occasional use as a lumber for articles of turnery.
