I have never been to Tassie…


This is going to be a first for me… off to the timber show in Launceston, Tasmania, in 2 weeks… I have never been to Tasmania and am really looking forward to dropping in on one of the world’s greatest timber growing regions… and home of some of the world’s best wood craftsmen…. I hope to meet up with some of them and swap ideas..

And speaking of timbers…

Tasmanian Blackwood [one of my favourites.] Myrtle, Huon Pine, King William Pine, Celery Top Pine, Leatherwood, Silver Wattle….. and my all time favourite…

Black Heart Sassafras…

Like a kid in a candy store… or lolly shop as we say here in the land downunder…

Flying out on the Wednesday afternoon..arriving  in the evening… that leaves all day Thursday to make sure the stand is in tip top shape… all the machines [we are taking 3] are assembled and tuned… all the gear is working and everything is ready for the three days of the show…

Pack up on Sunday afternoon and fly back north on Monday afternoon… may be a little time to sight see on Monday forenoon…

I can’t wait… and for all those readers of this blog or my posts at Lumberjocks please come by and say hi… check out the deals and just have a chat…

    Enjoy the trip Larry. Can’t wait to see the show photos, and the gloat on the wood you score!
    The photo on your LJ page looks a lot like a segment from the light show at the Brisbane Metallica Concert!
    (I noticed as I am a recent convert to Metallica’s music!)
    Regards
    Bill
