« Part 10: The Morning After.. Part 11 of Tasmanian Woodworking... series no next part

Down south in Tasmania, at a little place called Myrtle Creek, you will meet the Carins Brothers… Rory, Roderick and George…

The family have been timber loggers for 5 generations and have recently moved into milling the timber they log on the 600 acre family property…

And what a great location to go to work… the views down the valley are breathtaking…

I took some video footage while I was there last month and have just now got around to editing it into something approaching watchable..

Just a short vid with a fairly catchy background music track…

G’day mate!

I see the ozzies had the good taste to name that machine after a great Irish whiskey! ;)

(although I prefer John Powers Three Swallow myself, when I can get it)

In case I don’t get a chance later to say it, all the best of the season to you and yours from your Canadian buddy.

I really enjoyed the video, Larry. That looks like a great place to visit. You’re really getting good at producing these vidieos so keep up the good work. :)

I’m surprised I’m the only one but the video doesn’t play correctly. It’s only showing part of the picture.
