« Part 4: Something at the HIGHER END.. Part 5 of Tasmanian Woodworking... series Part 6: Quick Wood Gloat. »

Up and coming designers… designers of the future being trained in Tasmania…

Not only does Tasmania have some of the most exotic timbers in the world but there are a lot of furniture design schools in Tasmania… they do not only teach design but they take a hands on approach…

Some fabulous designers coming out of these colleges.

From large items to the smaller pieces..

Some handcrafted and some made using computer controlled tools…
