Somewhere, there is a wood show.
They may not be as large as a Melbourne show, but the provincial shows can also be very rewarding.
Some I am aware of include:
Loch Woodworking and Timber Festival in Loch, Victoria, Sat 2—Sun 3 February
Tools and Techniques, Stuart School for Wood, Mittagong NSW, Sat 16—Sun 17 February
Artisans Expo, hosted by Artisans on the Hill, Tinonee NSW [near Taree], Fri 22—Sun 24 February
If you happen to be in the area, drop in and check em out. These shows may not always attract the big players of the large woodshows, but in these cases I know that Gifkins Dovetail will be there. Check out their Jumbo Gifkins too – It is great having the larger version of the original. I was going to use it to make a microwave to complement my daughter’s toy kitchen, but ran out of time. A project for another day!
