Got this wood from a firewood lot in Pasadena. It's camphor, and man, did I have clear sinuses after turning this stuff. My shop smelled like a liniment factory for a week afterward. I kinda liked it. The wood was relatively soft, but cut and sanded nicely. I went full salad bowl mode and just finished it with mineral oil. I sold it last weekend before I had a chance to get measurements, but it was about 12" across and 7" high. It'll hold a lot of salad.

This is another bowl from the same log, and it sold to the same guy. It's about 10" x 5", and more mineral oil finish. In this case, the finish seemed to be one of the main selling points. The buyer is a chef, and he was very familiar with oiling his wooden kitchen stuff.
