CAMPHOR BURL - (Cinnamumum camphor) - is an evergreen hardwood. A rare burl that is highly prized. Unlike most highly figured burls camphor is very stable requiring very little special care in its conversion from large burls to cut blanks. Most burls are very delicate requiring years of knowledge and experience to carefully cut and season. Camphor is usually available in veneer form and occasionally blocks and squares. Smelling of camphor, anise oil, the fragrance is either loved or despised. Most like the smell although it can be very strong with green stock.
