American Sycamore Veneer

Lacewood Veneer (Quartered European Plane Veneer)

American Sycamore is composed of 5 to 9 species which grow in North America and Eurasia (where it is known as European Plane).

American Sycamore sapwood, which is 4-8cm wide, is slightly lighter than the heartwood, which is light reddish-brown, and the timber is often chemically treated to produce a form of Harewood, in which the background colour becomes silver grey while the broad rays retain their original colour.

American Sycamore has a fine texture and the grain is usually straight, although it can be interlocked, and commonly called Lacewood as quarter cut veneers exhibit numerous, prominent reddish-brown broad rays, contrasting with the lighter background colour of the wood.
