« Part 9: Torque about New South Wales Part 10 of Going to local shows. series Part 11: Your chariot awaits.. »

There was a vast array of fine furniture, and wonderful timber items, at this years Maleny Wood Expo…

While it was once again a very quick trip around the show at the last minute.. I think I captured the essence of the show fairly well..

There are two exhibitors that I have written about separately, so they are not included.. several others may have been missed because, as I say, once again not enough time to do everything..

Only two days… and what with the Torque and my boards etc… well… just sit back and enjoy the show…

I did, this time, try to match music to the display but again with limited resources…

Enough of my waffling… this is what it is all about… a quick tour of the goodies.


Thanks to all who keep coming back and to those who I hope will return.

Wow.
I finally had time to watch.
I must watch again to make sure I didn’t miss anything that might be hiding.
What were you most awed by at the show ?

Lisa, I think the thing that awed me most was the diversity of work shown.. no two exhibitors had anything alike.. all unusual and unique, That said the club exhibits were all similar.
I will take a lot to break clubs out of the box.. all clubs and all club members seem to do the same thing year in and year out… not all really,... there are a few members that do think outside the box but not many.
The free thinkers seem to be loners and do not play well with others LOL…

I like the didgeridoos.
I bought one a few years back as a gift.
I played with it first so really it was a regift. LOL
This is not an easy instrument to play, but if you can get the hang of it
it makes some fantastic sounds !

And yes I agree about the clubs, I think that is why I shy away from joining one.
Turn their hearts and minds Larry, I know you can !
And if you can’t, may God turn their ankles, so we’ll know them by their limping.
LOL -An off take of an Irish prayer.
