Sycamore Pen Blank
|Sycamore is a somewhat under-appreciated domestic species that boasts excellent ray fleck, particularly on quartersawn sections, and is sometimes referred to as ´´lacewood´´ for this reason. While its interlocked grain can pose problems for planers, it turns beautifully on the lathe. Its sapwood is usually a light tan, while the heartwood is a reddish brown. Texture is fine and even, much like maple. Finishes nicely.
