Wood Blanks – Camphor Laurel (Cinnamomum camphorum)


SKU: TIMBER-CAMPHOR Categories: , , ,


Camphor Laurel Wood Blanks!

Camphor Laurel has an interesting history with woodworkers. Once regarded purely as noxious weed that was ripped out and burnt. The ones remaining grew large and vivid ranges of colouring and patterns making it the prettiest “Weed” species available in the timber industry and changing many opinions on its usage.

Used in an array of de-contestant products as well as having both anti-bacterial and pest-resistant properties means the practical applications of Camphor Laurel both in its timber and shaving form are limitless.

In regards to woodturning or wood-carving is one of the easiest to work species available and is one we advise beginners to hone their skills on before attempting denser species.

Sizes and Colour:

Its colours range from the mainly yellow heartwood to streaks of red, brown, orange, black and even green tinges.

May vary due to being a natural product, for larger quantities inquiry is key for availability.

When deciding on sizing required, it’s always better to allow larger specifications than you need, you can always remove more stock, you can’t add it back on later.

For projects larger than the available sizing, consider laminating multiple wood blanks to achieve your desired stock size.

All timber is sourced from sustainable and ecologically friendly sources and is kiln dried to Australian Quality Standards.

We have hand selected a range of quality species perfect for beginners and long term woodworkers both. Now available online!
