All over Europe with exception for Northern and Northeaster Europe. Grows almost nowhere but alongside roads and in gardens and parks. No forestry cultivation. Lacewood trees often have large diameters.
The heartwood is reddish-grey to brown in colour and changes to a wine-red when steamed. The longer it is steamed, the darker the colour. Colour variations within a log are common and often not to be avoided.
Lacewood can be machined well and easily with all tools. Planed surfaces have a beautiful lustre.
Lacewood dries extremely quickly without any great risk of checking but there is a tendency to warp. However, drying too quickly can lead to honeycombing.
Lacewood can be surface-treated easily and well with no difficulty. Polished surfaces give the best effect due to the texture.
Glue, screw and nail joints are easy to produce and are durable.
Veneer for production of furniture and architectural purposes. The typical “snakeskin“ marking is brought about by slicing true quarters, where rays are cut at an angle of 180° to produce decorative ellipse-shaped figuring.
