The sapwood of lacewood is cream colored and well defined. The heartwood varies in color from pinkish-brown to an orange-brown, which darkens on exposure. The highly figured interlocked, lace-like grain pattern is one of the most unusual of all exotic woods. Lacewood grain varies from straight to wavy and has a fine to medium-coarse texture. The large rays, which produce the unusual figure, are highly visible on quartered faces.

Lacewood is a medium-strength wood that has excellent steam bending properties. The interlocking, moderately coarse grain of lacewood can have a blunting effect on cutting edges, but otherwise works well with hand and machine tools. The cell cross-sections and prominent rays, which contribute to the lace-like appearance of the wood, can make it difficult to achieve a completely smooth finish when sanding, and often can raise above the surface when finishing. Lacewood has good gluing properties and can be nailed or screwed without pre-boring.

The unusual markings of lacewood make it popular for turnings, musical instruments, decorative accessories, veneers, flooring, paneling, and for marquetry.
