Shade: Dark
Grain: Grain is usually straight but can occasionally have interlocking grain. Fine, uniform texture and a high natural luster.
Workability: Tends to be difficult to work due to its high density. Kingwood has a moderate blunting effect on cutters, and tearout can occur during planing if interlocked grain is present. Can be difficult to glue do to an abundance of natural oils and high density. Turns very well and takes a high polish.
Physical Properties: Very dense, very hard wood with high durability. Typically only available in small sizes.
Uses: inlays, veneers, tool handles, and other small turned and/or specialty items.
Interior/Exterior: both interior and exterior
