Lacewood or Silky Oak: an exotic wood from Australia

Lacewood or Silky Oak:
Lacewood is a soft to medium density wood, medium to light brown, mostly know for it's fasinating appearance. When cut correctly each piece shows many cross sections of cells, some 1/4" in diameter and some as large as 3/4" distributed evenly across the wood. It is great if you are trying to design fish scales for carving or intarsia projects
Easy to work with, for cutting, planing & routing. Sanding and finishing is a little more difficult as the cell "cross sections" like to raise above the general plane of the wood, thus not always achieving a perfectly flat finish, .. although this is rarely significant in intarsia or carving.
3/4" x 5 1/2" x 23 1/2" (1 piece)
