That particular piece of lacewood turned out less than impressive. It was a bit of a let down because it's usually much more figured. Perhaps I am the culprit and I should've cut the piece differently. I honestly don't know...

It's usually quartersawn to show the flecks or specks or whatever you want to call it. 

That must be it. The piece was a 2"X2" block I got for free in a bulk buy and did not show nearly as much grain as other lacewood I had. It must have been cut straight instead of quarter sawn...

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft

resanded it up to 1200g and then did a CA glue treatment

CA treatment as in stabilized? 

I sanded this one to #1000 then hit the buffer with white compound. I believe Cody hit the nail with the grain not being quartersawn..
