What to do this weekend?


Well if you are into timber like I am, and you live in south east Queensland, you will be off to the Maleny Wood Festival 2012…

From chainsaw to fine furniture.Two days of clean country family fun hosted by Barung Landcare, the Wood Expo showcases sustainable timber production and our beautiful native timbers through the work of local wood artisans.

Nearly every woodworker I know in the south east goes to Maleny…. the first weekend in May…. to buy timber…. the selections are varied and the prices reasonable…

You can watch the various mills in action … slabbing logs…

 “Here’s Johnny”  My good mate John, slabbing a small camphor log.

You can watch the Slab Master and Torque Workcentre … dressing slabs…

You can check out the timber… at Trevor and Geoffs’ green shed… a great variety of Tasmanian timbers .. and don’t forget the Camphor Laurel.

Not sure if George will be there this year… he move a little bit west of here… more than likely he will be but have not seen him for a while… he has a lot of western and central Queensland timbers… hairy oak, osage orange to name two…thousands of pen blanks..

Then there are the displays of toys, furniture, boxes, outdoor slab furniture etc…

The main reason I am going this year is not just for all the above but to visit the instrument makers stand..

From reading previous blogs you will all know about the electric bass…need a few pointers…

Hope to see you there… if you do see me, please stop me for a chat…
