« Part 33: Cooroy show... where there is a will there is a way... Part 34 of Going to local shows. series Part 35: Torque about Tight... »

Each show I attend, I make a point of featuring one stand… this year at the Timber and Working with Wood Show the stand that caught my eye ..

My good friend Brian’s company, Sitco, had a great display of Solomon Island Queen Ebony including some great carvings from the Islands…

Not a great set up but the timber and the carvings really stood out..

I managed to pick up some small sticks of the Ebony for use as accents in a lazy larry or two, and also as stripes in a cutting board I am going to make…

Bit of an African theme there Larry.
Looks like wood supplies are just as expensive up North.

Well, don’t you see some ideas there. Sculpture. To set on your boards….. about wood sculpted beer bottles, whiskey, wine….......

I should think that would keep you one step ahead of all those other board builders…....

Shouldn’t have to go too far to find a model. Probably cheap too.

Saw the stand and it was very impressive. Did look for you but you must of been on a coffee break THE WHOLE AFTERNOON. Or maybe just when you saw me coming.

Anyway it was a great show. I spent most of the afternoon at Neil Scobie’s chair tutorial. It was fantastic, I really learnt alot.

Catch you next time.
