Start at the beginning.


They tell me that the best place to start is the beginning… so that is where I will start…I have been going to Timber and Working with Wood shows for many years but only in the last 12 months have I been fortunate enough to be part of the exhibitors side of these Shows… I got to go to Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and now Canberra…

There is a lot of organising to do to get to one of these shows… it is not just getting up early and catching a plane…doing the show and then flying home with a bunch of orders…

A whole plethora of gear has to be packed as well as several demonstration machines… Video screens, banners, tools to use to assemble the machines as well as use on the machines, brochures, cards, dvds, power cords,  etc… you get the picture… and I am fortunate enough to able to include some of my work… for display and sale… and this last show I took some timber for sale as well…

Some exhibitors do just turn up with a change of clothes and a toothbrush.. others have a great amount of things that go into making a great display…

Over the next days/weeks I will showcase various aspects of the shows and some of the characters that go to make these shows informative and entertaining…

Firstly though I would like to acknowledge the effort made by a small group of dedicated professionals who organise the actual shows themselves…

There is a lot going on behind the scenes and many frustrations but everything is handled calmly and with a smile…Nothing fazes these fabulous folks and nothing it too difficult… you only have to ask and it is done… if you make a suggestion, it is taken seriously…They all get along well with each other and have formed bonds with all the exhibitors who support them… and in return support the people who participate in these shows…

Rick, Elizabeth, Adam, Siobhan, Maurie and Stefan...

My hat is off to Rick and Elizabeth, Adam, Siobhan, Maurie and Stefan…

Well done guys… look forward to many more shows in the future…
