Re: Camphor

Hey HOWDY, and Welcome back BUCKaroo!

 

I still enjoy your books.

 

Sorry, I have no experience with Camphor wood, but I do know it was used in Ancient Egypt for building small furniture, boxes, etc. I saw the "Treasures of King Tut" at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and bought the exhibit book. I just checked, and sho' 'nuff, Camphor wood is mentioned.

 

Good to see you are still on the top side of the sod.
