Hi Randy
thanks for the invite Bro !!
yes best thing with the chunk of lace Wood it to send it down here to sheffield , it's horrible stuff you would not like to work it !! hehe!!

Um, the grain runs in more than one plane... not plain!! lol

We've all done it.... found a stunning piece of timber, spent hours deciding what to do with it, then screwed it up by using the wrong tools or not working 'with' the wood. So this the place to ask your questions, show off your wood turning (or even just your wood stash!), maybe buy, sell or swap some raw material?
Id dearly like some help on what to do with my lump of lacewood.... the grain seems to run in more than one plain.... anyone got any advice on how to achieve the best from the grain?
