Quarter cut Brazilian Lacewood veneer can be yellow-brown with reddish tones to a light pink, and has a silvery sheen. This species can also can range from a more creamy yellow to salmon. The grain has a medium to heavy flake, which comes from the pronounced medullary ray common to the species. The flake pattern can run small to large and is dependent on how it has formed inside the log.

Lacewood is usually only used for borders or on small areas of furniture because the pattern is “busy.” The highly figured grain can make a strong design statement in architectural applications, however.

Architectural panels, millwork, musical instruments and cabinetry are all possible applications. When a lighter color is desired, flaky oak and quartered white oak veneers are good alternatives.

We have a variety of veneer panel sizes available in this species, as well as 3/4, 4/4 and 8/4 square edge lumber. For a fun reference to visualize how flakes can range in size, imagine the flake pattern as the size of individual rice krispies to the larger corn flakes cereal.
