To true, but we can wish for it. I’ll have to look around here and see if there are any shows like this for the summer. North East PA

I would have found it difficult to come away from there without a truck-load of wood (and maxing out my credit card, of course)!

I’m with the rest of you. It would be nice to see an event like this in the states.

I have the same affliction. I can’t go anywhere where there is wood being cut, and NOT walk away with an empty wallet.

I hope to have a collection like Karson some day.

I fell in love with some of the wood I saw in Kuranda at a tag sale a few years ago. I would have been very overweight on Quantas on the way home. You have some great stuff to work with with out the transportation costs and markups that we in the US have to deal with.

Getting ready to cut Maple that we planted 45 years ago, and Ash. They cannot begin to compare with your lumber Larry.
