Experiment Yeah. First time I ever turned camphor wood. My shop may not ever be the same. Smell like Vapor Rub. My lizards that keep me company while working in the shop are behaving a bit abnormally. They keep walking away from me and looking back at me with an evil look. Hmmmm. The diameter is 9 1/4" with a height of 2 3/4". The depth is 2 1/4" with a volume of 6 cups. Amazingly light as well. Only weighs 14 oz. I used my usual walnut oil for sealing and the finishing with shellac with a bit of walnut oil wax mixed in. I didn't want to experiment with a new wood and the shine juice. Not that adventurous any more.

Oh, yeah. No sinus problem out there! Thanks, guys! Appreciate. Still have another piece of it but it's gonna have to wait a few days. Plans are cutting down a couple of hackberry logs tomorrow.

That is a very pretty bowl..
I love camphor wood, it is pretty and I love the smell when cutting or turning it... I still have a small chunk in the bottle stopper blank.
The seat in my wooden Auburn Speedster model, I built are made with camphor wood.
