Exhibition Grade Camphor Burl Pen Blank - 3/4"

INCLUDES 1 WOOD BLANK (several blanks are shown to indicate the range of color/grain to expect). Camphor Burl, Cinnamumum camphor, is a rare burl from Southeast Asia that is highly prized. Camphor burl is very stable, requiring little special care in its conversion from large wet burls to cut blanks; unlike the majority of other burl species where the burls are very delicate requiring years of knowledge and experience to carefully cut and season. Camphor burl is usually available in veneer form and occasionally blocks and squares. The wood has a strong fragrance of root beer which is typically either loved or despised. Our stock is air dried for one year. There is moisture in the blanks but it will dry within two weeks. Skill level: Intermediate.
