« Part 39: Some shots from the Adelaide DIY show. Part 40 of Going to local shows. series no next part

It is on again this weekend…at the RNA.

Comes around so quickly these days…

Tomorrow, I will be dropping some timber for sale off to Trevor’s Stand… in the outside area…

European Walnut…

European Wild Cherry…

Remember to drop by and say Hi… and get some bargain timber…

Friday, I will be attending as a member of the public to check out the show… for the first time in 3 years, I will not be an exhibitor …

I am no longer demonstrating Torque WorkCentres… my business has taken a different turn in the road… and we are parting company… I still love my TWC but due to a change of direction, I find myself moving on to other ventures.

I am actually looking forward to taking my time and meeting up with so many great woodworkers… and not having to race back to a stand…should be a real treat..

It will be different for me …as an exhibitor/demonstrator I met a lot of wonderful people…now as a visitor….it will be nice to catch up…

Enjoy the show! I do hope the Brisbane show is better than the one in Melbourne last year.

You enjoy the show. I am sure you will be coming home with plenty of new ideas, and will have given other woodworkers ideas and advice.

You’re killing me with all this talk of cheap lumber. But I do hope you have a really good time & share information you get.

See you there tomorrow (Saturday). I am looking for some nice Jarah, so keep an eye out for me.
