The top and bottom parts are camphor in upward direction grain. The main part in the middle is built out of 216 segments of two kind of timber. All segments were cut by hand miler and built one by one and line by line. Each line, after drying, was sanded against disc sander to make sure all segments on one level. It took extra time but I enjoyed every moment of it. 310 mm tall.
