General Details

The wood of Sycamore trees is predominantly comprised of the sapwood, with some darker heartwood streaks also found in most boards. The sapwood is white to light tan, while the heartwood is a darker reddish brown. Sycamore also has very distinct ray flecks present on quarter sawn surfaces—giving it a freckled appearance—and it is sometimes even called ‘Lacewood’.

The texture is fine and even and the grain is interlocked. It is diffuse-porous, with small pores that gradually become less frequent from earlywood to latewood. Tyloses are occasionally present in this wood, and the growth rings are extremely distinct due to lighter colour of latewood and decreased pore frequency. The rays are easily visible without lens and noded, while parenchyma are rare or absent.

Imported from various regions all over Europe, Sycamore finds great use in our lifestyle.
