Alright, how did you do it? I was looking for patterns in the wood where you made strips and glued them, but this looks totally random. I like the contrast between the purpleheart and leopardwood.

That is not leopard wood… that is silky oak… grevilea robusta… or at least call it Australian Lacewood…


This is leopard wood from a leopard tree….. so named for the spots on the bark.

BTW nice job on the board… looks like one of Scott Porosky’s drunken boards.

Nice job on the board

It’s easy to mistake Lacewood for Leopard wood

Some people think they are the same thing.

But like degoose says, it’s lacewood.
Leopard Wood: South America

Lacewood: Australia
