Lacewood Wood Veneer

Lacewood VeneerThese lacewood veneer sheets have flecks of grain that reflect light in way that is very similar to quartersawn oak but with wider and more densely packed arrays. I've seen walnut and wenge solid wood projects that have been accented with lacewood and the results were absolutely beautiful. This species is very easy to work with. It bonds well with ordinary veneer glue and sands easily.

Looking for large sheets of this species? We also offer it in AA grade paper-backed veneer, which can be applied with contact cement or any other veneer adhesive.

Tip from Joe

I've found that iPhones and iPads display reasonably accurate colors of our veneer photos.
 
Rendering variations on some computer monitors can cause our pictures to appear different from the actual veneer.
