January 2004 - I bought this wood on the internet.  Lacewood is native to Queensland, Australia, especially in the northern coastal areas. Also known as Silky oak it has a striking figure, varying from a small lacelike pattern to a large splashlike figure. It is light and soft, yet firm, strong and tough. The timber is popular as a highly ornamental wood, and is used for furniture, paneling, and similar decorative uses.
