We have turned some camphor logs into some sweet camphor slabs.

Camphor is a very fragrant wood whose extract is used medicinally around the world. The wood is quite interesting. When fresh sawn it is a pale white. As the wood oxidizes the heartwood becomes almost red. Camphor machines very well and turns like butter. These particular slabs have some great crotch figure. This material has been slabbed into 2”,3” and 4” great for wood turning. We will be kiln drying some slabs as well for furniture.

While we were sawing this the entire facility smelled wonderful.

I love logs and lumber:)
