Today I bought 2 Bd.Ft. of lacewood for another lock. I also bought a small piece of bubinga for a inlay. I have never worked with lacewood or made a inlay before, so hopefully I will learn something new. I am hoping to photograph the lock as I make it.
Today I finished the calf roping stand for my son. He picked it up before I could get a pic of it.

the only finish i’ve like on lacewood has been amber shellac. i’m sure there are others, but this seems to pop the figure without changing the essence of the material. i’ll be interested if you find other things that work. good luck!

I agree, amber shellac works great with lacewood. Nothing else is needed.
