After the show.


Last Monday, after the DIY WoodWorking Show in Launceston finished… Luke and I were fortunate enough to be invited out to Myrtle Creek, just a short drive into the hills from Launceston…

A new found friend, Cranston Shaw, Managing Director of Shaw Engineering, the largest Civil Engineering Company in Tasmania, took time from his busy schedule to drive us out there and then make sure we were at the airport in plenty of time.  We also had time to drop in for a bite to eat and a beer.. all round a great day..

Back to the home of the Carins Brothers….. Mum, Dad, Rory, Roderick, George and Rodericks wife Laura…Myrtle Creek Timbers..

The Carins family has been logging their 600 acre property for 5 generations and have only recently got into the milling of the timber they log…

Myrtle Creek Timbers can supply

  • Wide boards
  • Beams
  • Natural edge slab
  • Craft timber and Burls
  • Minor species timbers.

Contact can be made by calling Roderick on 0419 383 670 or …

Email the boys!

In the next video I will show case their milling operation but for now this is just a little walk around the SHED…

This is the first video and is a before shot… they are in the process of refurbishing the workshop from a garage for diesel parts into  a processing centre and show room…

I have promised to return for an after video, which should be something to look forward to..
