« Part 19: A funny thing happened on the way to the show... Part 20 of Going to local shows. series Part 21: Wooden toys.. »

This video was taken yesterday at the Brisbane Timber and Working with Wood Show…I decided that while many of my posts have previously included machinery and tools… this time it is….

Timber, timber and more timber.


The whole timber,

And nothing but the timber.

once upon a timber time there was this bloak who did nothing but mess with wood…he had this really nice shed with way to much timber in the back …more then what he knew to do with….so he went to all of these timber shows and became even more intimbernated…which made him walk in a funny way…so what is the moral of this story…..once a timber mate…always a timber mate…which makes you a timbermater…which is better then an alligator….maybe the one telling the story has been drinking to much timberjucice…..

Not many tool peddlers, eh? Lots of nice wood. That is probably why the cutting boards were slow, most could make them from their scrapes????

Thanks for the great video Larry. Like dangling a carrot in front of a donkey. I couldn’t help but wonder what the accompanying wives were thinking as they followed their men around to look at the timber.

Wow. Some amazing timber and thanks to you I at least got to see it.

Any room in Aus for an old, itinerant box making Brit?

What did you do, borrow them some of the timber from your shed to stock their show?

You are getting to be quite a video maker!

I was dancing the som-ba around my shop to the music while watching the clip.
(not a pretty sight….picture standing man being electrocuted.)

Some of those large standing timbers are tremendous.

Thanks for letting us attend via the machine here.

Bob67Cam: Not sure that there is much original music written for the Porn genre. I would think that most of it’s been popular someplace else and used there.

Larry: great vid and soundtrack.

Larry, I could have used a voice over telling me about the various types of wood. Of course, you would have to be speaking English!! Thanks, Robert

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

The porn tunes alone are worth the price of admission ! Great job , Larry…I knew you looked familiar for some reason : ) My pc didn’t allow the video to go to full screen….Is it possible to do it ?

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
