I've been thinking about what we can do with the leftover wood from our felled Camphor trees!
Maarten Baas recently exhibited his “Chinese Objects Object” made from Camphor wood! It was the result of a challenge he gave to Woodcarvers from Shanghai to make extraordinary works with their techniques, creating a cross-over between western design and Chinese techniques.

BeaG is an artist and designer who lives near Gent in Belgium. [It's a beautiful part of the world - we were barging there with friends last year] I like her Takkenkrans or Branch Wreath!Back to our Camphor wood! These are the giant Camphor Slices we now have at the top of our garden:Some will become stepping stones and I have brought a bowl-full of the fragrant wood shavings inside.
Unless we come across a talented wood artist, in our subtropical climate, the rest will decompose and the nutrients will be returned to the soil in the next few years!
