« Part 28: Off to Tassie... Part 29 of Going to local shows. series Part 30: New Product Launch. »

You heard correctly … I will have some Tasmanian timber for sale at the show… just over a cubic metre of Tasmanian Huon Pine…

Got a call today letting me know that the Carins Brothers from Tasmania will not be attending the Maleny show… and they have some Huon Pine stored at YAS Engineering where the TWC is made…...

They will however be attending the Timber and Working With Wood Show at the RNA in Brisbane 3 weeks later…

So I have been asked to sell the Huon Pine on their behalf…

I rang Steve, the Organiser, and booked a site… Right near the boys from Torque… Right at the bottom of the hill … right near the back gate to the car park…

Pop over and get a bargain… they have told me to halve their regular price just for the Maleny show…

If you wait for Brisbane you will miss out … there will never be a better time to buy some great timber…

I will also have a load of small slab offcuts of walnut..

And don’t forget the Launch of the Ultimate Blokes BBQ Board….

See you all there… if you can…

Larry my friend, you have me drooling again. (sigh)

If only shipping costs from Oz to Canada weren’t so bloomin’ high.

I will go pretty far to lay my grubby paws on some Huon Pine….I’ve heard so much about it. Why, oh why is Ausie so far from here…

Thats some nice wood you have posted. Hope all is well down under and stay warm now that winter is coming your way. Blondie and I really need to get back down under. Might have to wait til summer comes though!

Good Luck at the show!
