Description

Kingwood Polyhedral DiceKingwood is another typical rosewood which is very dense and has a bell-like tap tone. This stuff truly does ring in larger sizes. Kingwood got its name due to the fact that it was the favored wood of King Louie the 15th and 16th. It is said that all the furniture in their entire palace used Kingwood inlays. In addition to its amazing tonal properties, Kingwood has a rich violet brown coloration that you must see to believe. It is marked with dark and light striations and the very rare sap wood inclusion makes for a very nice pale creamy yellow contrast to the striated violet browns of the heart wood.

Kingwood is a close cousin to the now endangered and highly sought after Brazilian Rosewood. Kingwood while rare, is not endangered and is exported for use in musical instruments and furniture making. Another close relative to Kingwood is Tulipwood.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to CITES regulations Kingwood cannot be shipped internationally.
