« Part 37: Back from Sydney Part 38 of Going to local shows. series Part 39: Some shots from the Adelaide DIY show. »

There was just so much timber of all shapes and sizes at the Sydney Timber and Working with Wood show… and so well priced…...Some of the timber sellers had to go back home and get more….

Lots of native hardwoods at Boutique Timbers.

There’s Greg and Adam and some Red Cedar slabs.

Now this would make a great dining room table … don’t you think…

More great looking slabs…

Burl for a coffee table…


More burls and a burl base for a table…

How is this for bookmatching… superb…
There was so much there that you really needed to be there to see it all…

Most of these pieces are a art form all their own!
Glad you are back home, safely.

Zounds!!!!!!!!

......sure they didn’t destroy any Hobbitt houses….......boot out Winnie the Pooh…......or commit any other heinous crimes to get those slabs. Gee willikers.

Nice stuff…..........hmmmmmmm.

Hmmmmmmm.

........do you think you could pose as a lumberjack and heist some of this stuff….....put it on an old submarine…and smuggle it into Alaska?

I am sure some of those trees are on someone’s endangered species list…..............

Hope you got some good stuff….....so you can cut it up into little pieces to make cutting boards….....(-:
