I found this piece of lacewood-Silky Oak to those down under- at Almquist lumber in Arcata,CA. I was amazed by the look of the grain. It reminds me of polywog tails. I thought it would go well with some Purpleheart DeGoose is always going on about needing a little Purple and this works! This wood was next to some FishTail Oak and I had to ask the lumber guy if it was mislabeled. The grain kind of looks like fishtails. John Ormsby in Sacramento looked at some pictures and said it one of the 3 kinds of Lacewood, the less dense kind. He showed me pictures of a KITCHEN he did in Lacewood, so I think he knows!!
Thanks for looking. Robert
