Wanted: Camphor Laurel slabs
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.
Mods: Sorry If I am not aloud to post this second thread here.Regards 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.

Camphor timber up for grabs
Hi Ben upton, we are having our very large camphor tree cut down and it is pretty big. I would imagine perfect for timber slabbing let me know if you would be interested. Thanks, Amelia

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.
