So many woods have so many names in different countries but sticking to
the UK the aforementioned Lacewood is plane which has been quarter sawn
and looks in pattern very different from  the same timber plain sawn.
You are all invited to come round to my house to see the difference on
furniture I have made from it. The most notable UK use of Lacewood was
in the veneer panels of steam train carriage compartments - OK hands up
all those who can remember......

Satinwood, I believe, is the wood of Liquidambar Styraciflua - thewood
being known in uk as Satin Walnut - but I'd stand to be corrected - and
undoubtedly will be ;)

All the best

Isn't "satinwood" something of a generic term? My (american) authority
refers to Plane timber as "buttonwood" and quotes Selby, an english
furniture authority at some length. It seems the bulk of description
historically has been to Oriental plane and its not clear to what extent
the hybrid inherits the oriental timber quality: it may be very close
indeed, or perhaps not.
