I have used the denser South American Lacewood in cutting boards. It has nasty splinters, but sands well. It throws up a lot of these splinters when I cut it on the table saw so I wear a face shield. I think it is hard enough to stand up to wear in the kitchen. But, most of these boards were probably too pretty to see a lot of daily use. Lacewood would not be the primary wood, but mixed with Maple, etc. The less dense and lighter colored Lacewood is great for boxes. I have some examples in my projects.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
