852-17: American sycamore is sometimes called American lacewood, when it is Quarter-sawn and elected for figure. After a tree came down in our neighborhood I organized a saw mill party and was able to select the boards with the best wood grain. The cream colored sycamore contrasts with deep red mahogany left over from the furniture trade in the last century when Grand Rapids was famous for its industry. The Dickerson hoop measures 13.5 x 9.5 inches with a curved 8.5 inch handle.
