Kingwood (Dalbergia cearensis) is a particularly beautiful species of rosewood (Dalbergia). It comes from Brazil, mainly from the regions of Bahia, Ceará, Paraíba, and Pernambuco. It has a dark purplish color with light brown streaks. It is hard, dense, and is great for working and features a lovely scent. It does not like high temperature during processing (such as those produced by grinding) and it will respond with immediate darkening. It is a classic furniture wood, but is also used in musical instruments or other turning work.

Finely grained wood may contain imperfections such as open knots, bark inclusions, or cracks that are typical of the species. These flaws come from the way the tree has grown and are completely natural. They can usually be filled with low-viscosity cyanoacrylate (super glue) and wood dust.
