I really like the pattern that this wood exhibits. The pattern in the grain of the wood looks like shimmering fish scales! The lighter spots are rays flecks that are exposed when Lace Wood is quarter sawn.

This pottery rib is a beautiful example of my surfboard ribs. The one listed here is made from Lacewood with a single beading tool built in for looks and function. This rib is great for a large platter rim or a large shallow bowl. The beading tool works great on the foot or on the rim

I'm a woodworker and a potter, too. It seemed like I needed something just a little different than I could get from the catalogs, so I started making my own pottery tools.

This rib measures 6 3/4" long by just over 2" wide. It is a meaty 3/8" thick and the large grip hole is almost an 1" across. This rib is made from a beautiful piece of highly figured Lacewood.

I would be happy to make a custom shaped rib for you if there is a design that you have in mind we can talk about it.

In the finishing process I have hand rubbed this rib with a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil. The care and maintenance of your tools is important to their giving you years of satisfaction. They should not be left in your water pail or in the slurry bucket. At the end of a day of use these tools should be wiped down and occasionally redressed with a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil.
