LACEWOOD - HARDWOOD EXOTIC LUMBERLACEWOOD 4/4"
LACEWOOD LUMBER – 4/4" – FAS
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths
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.

Board Foot Calculator
The easiest and most common way to calculate board feet is to use a board foot calculator.
Several different board foot calculators are available online or check your app store and download to your phone.
To calculate board feet of lumber, use the following formula:
- Board Feet = Width (inches) x Thickness (inches) x Length (FEET) divided by 12.
Example – For a piece of lumber 2 inches thick, 6 inches wide and 10 feet long, you calculate board feet as follows:
Board Feet = (6 x 2 x 10) divide by 12 = 10 board feet.
If your order requires specifics, call to verify we have exactly what you need.
Example: If you order 100 board feet and need one board 8'6" that is at least 8" wide and one board 10' at least 6" wide – be sure to state exactly what you need.
