I was asked to make a lighter colored wood box and these two woods happened to be in the lumber pile.
Birdseye Maple and Lacewood.
I ordered some Leopardwood a while back from Woodworkers source and they sent me this Lacewood…I guess thinking I would not know the difference…BIG difference. If they don’t know the difference then I feel sorry for them…but maybe they were just trying to get over. It is like a pale and soft version of Leopardwood and the flecks are on the edge of the board (quarter swan) Hope they don’t deal with referrals…
-- Wood for projects is like a good Fart..."better when you cut it yourself"
