>In 20 plus years in the Amazon the only peice of Kingwood I have ever held was a sample brought here from a dealer in Pheonix. I have since lost the sample. I would like opinions as to if anyone with experience with Kingwood beleives this is the real thing. The photo shows more purple than it really is. It has brownish tints and burgandy also. It will take me several weeks to have this verified in the States and there are several trees available now in a road clearing project and if anyone thinks it is in fact Kingwood I will bring it in. In all my books and internet information I have been unable to find a photo of the cell structure, bark or leaves. Extremly hard and heavy. This peice is 8" x 10 ". It turns to a shine without laquer. Thanks for any help , it would be appreciated.
