long time lurker just about to dive in at the deep end. Anyway I was nosing around my local exotic woods store when I came across this stuff. I believe it's a relative of lacewood. It looks great with a similar colour to mahogany. Does anybody have any experience with it, or could enlighten me further as to it's properties. I've done the usual googling but didn't get too much information.

Sorry, but a couple of sites have them listed as the same genus. Therefore the same wood!

Look at page 7. Sorry, it's Adobe!

It is called (in several site sites) Brosimum Guianensis- Leopardwood/Snakewood common name Letterwood. Although Gilmer Wood calls Snakewood Piratinera Guianensis.

Look on my first post where I posted "edit". At the top of that site it spells it out.

I didn't make this stuff up, so don't take it out on me. I'm just telling it as I see it. :D
