Collection: Lace Sheoak

Sheoak, Allocasuarina fraseriana, is one of the worlds rarest and most desirable woods. It is ideal for fine furniture, cabinetry, guitars, wood turning, inlaying, boxes and other high end uses. The heartwood colors range from light pink to dark red with orange/purple and can contain occasional black streaks. The sapwood is a light yellowish brown. Sheoak can be highly figured. Because it is hard to find in sizable boards, it is best suited for smaller projects. Lace Sheoak looks like a a fiery explosion of burning embers. This figure pattern is very rare and prized for high end applications. Lace Sheoak trees range from 50-130 feet tall with diameters of 12-24 inches. Very large medullary rays produce a lace-like pattern on quartersawn surfaces. The grain is straight to slightly interlocked and has uniform medium texture with a moderate amount of natural luster.
