« Part 24: More pics of the TWC stand in Adelaide... Part 25 of Going to local shows. series Part 26: I have not been to Tasmania... »

Well this time tomorrow Luke and I will be heading for the Brisbane Airport to climb on board a QANTAS jet
bound for Australia’s capital.. Canberra…

The Canberra Timber and Working with Wood Show is scheduled to start Friday morning and go through to Sunday afternoon..

From all the other TWWS’s I have been to this promises to be a fantastic time…

Of course we are traveling down to do some demos on the Torque Workcentre… and I know that there will be some great bargains to be had … so hop on over and say G’day to Luke and me…

This year I also have a small quantity of Purple Heart for sale … remember the early bird gets the timber… I guarantee that it will not last long…. so come early…

I also intended to bring lots of my work to showcase but most of it is already sold… on commission… but I do have a few pieces to fit into my luggage.. If you have any questions about the Torque or about how I make my designs please feel free to stop by for a chat… as you all know I like nothing more than a good chat …especially about timber and tools…

So it is an early night tonight… early start in the morning and a great three day of the show to look forward to…

And I have remembered to pack all my winter woolies… the temperature in Canberra is in the single figures… not freezing but nonetheless cool for a sunny Queensland lad…

See you all there…

Larry, I pray that you will have a safe trip and a successful one as well. I don’t think you will have too much trouble selling what you have made because you do good work and I hope you have success with the equipment as well. Have a good time.
