A quick reminder about this feature of the Australian Calendar – the TWWW Show. It is still doing the rounds, with the Canberra show in just 9 days, and 44 days to Melbourne!
A great way to check out a whole spectrum of Australian woodworking industries, compare products side-by-side, get special prices on products, attend the free seminars, get to talk with the local producers etc. Check out the site map to find out who you can expect to see.
At the Melbourne Show for example, meet Terry Gordon and Colen Clenton on the HNT Gordon stand for hand-made planes, squares and other darkside tools (I doubt they call it that though ;) ), Neil Ellis from U-Beaut Enterprises, Roger Gifkins and his Gifkins dovetail jig, and so the list goes on. The Triton stand will be there, and I will be there of course, demonstrating a lot of the new range of Triton toys (sorry – tools).
Hope to see you all there!
For those not from Oz, do check out your local Wood Shows – from what I hear the American ones, for example, are massive! You learn a heap, spend lots of cash :D and have a great day (or two….or three!)
Have just spoken with Terry Gordon (HNT Gordon & Co Classic Plane Makers) and he will be at the Canberra Show next week, so check the stand out – the planes (and other tools) are works of art, and are a pleasure to use. I am hoping to feature some of them in a video podcast after the Melbourne show, so stay tuned!
