    Default Wanted: Camphor Laurel slabs

    Hi,
    Thought I would ad this here for people who do not look in the small timber milling section of the forum. I'm looking for Camphor Laurel Slabs over 300mm in width.

    If you have any Camphor you would like to sell get in contact with me and we can organize a purchase.

    I would also be willing to have a pallet packed and sent down to Melbourne if the timber is in NSW or QLD.

    Thanks Ben
    Mods: Sorry If I am not aloud to post this second thread here.
    Regards Ben

    Hi Ben,
    I recently completed a commission of two matching tables in wide camphor boards.
    Not sure what you are making but looks very nice when finished.
    One board shown here had a knot hole which I filled with resin.
    The other image shows what I started with.
    I will add this project to forum soon.

    cheers

    Default Camphor slabs

    Hi Ben,
    Have a look in the yellow pages for the Northern Rivers timber listing. There is quite an industry in the area making 'rough' furniture out of camphor slabs and I'm sure with a few phone calls you will find what you want. One is Timber Slab Factory at Mullumbimby 026684361. I don't know them but the name seems right.
