A5 Camphor Burr
Where: China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Vietnam
Botanical name: Cinnamomum camphora
Camphor Burr has a particularly dense and unusually vibrant blend of sapwood and heartwood. These elements combine to produce natural patterns which include ripple and wave effects as well as interlocked grains that range markedly from light to dark. Tones include light yellow and olive through to oranges, reds, brownish greys and golden browns. These rich variations make it popular for furniture and electric guitar making.
Camphor Burr has a strong aromatic fragrance which can linger pleasantly in the wood for years. The trees, which are native to Southern China, Taiwan, Southern Japan, Korea and Vietnam, can reach heights of 30 metres.Please note: since wood is a natural product, your Bark & Rock notebook truly is unique and is likely to differ in both pattern and shade from the photographs on our website. These are designed to be indicative of a given type of wood in general.
