Lace Wood, also called Brazilian Lacewood and South American Lacewood (scientific name: Panopsisrubescens and P. sessilifolia), has a heartwood of red-brown color with pale brown rays. There is obvious flecking, which gives the wood its name.Its texture is coarse and uneven, and grain is generally straight.
When quarter cut/sawn a lace pattern is seen. Flecks are largest when quarter cut because of wide medullary rays.
Lace Wood is commonly found in tropical South America. It is not durable and prone to insect attack.
