I've turned a bunch of Lacewood mirrors. Great stuff but you need to avoid sanding with the coarser grits. It has hard spots and soft spots and if you start sanding with a coarse grit it starts getting lumpy and is exagerated with each succeeding grit. I turn the lathe speed up and take a final pass with a really sharp tool to eliminate all but the high grits of sandpaper
