Australasia's home for timber news and information

A wonderful world of wood

What is it about the Adelaide Timber and Working with Wood show that attracts such a diverse, curious and devoted audience of hobbyists, renovators, trades people, the general public and professional and amateur woodworkers alike?

Perhaps its the intense sensory stimulation of the show: the buzz of high powered electric tools, the impressive sight of massive trunks of (renewable) timber being milled into table sized slabs right in front of you, the feel of sawdust beneath your shoes, the smell of just sawn timber in the air, woodchips flying, lathes turning, jaws dropping.

Maybe it’s the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of Australia’s most re-known woodworkers and fine furniture craftsman and get practical and hands on advice during live seminars and workshop demonstrations.

It could be the opportunity to see, try and buy from thousands of hand tools, power tools, drills. saws, lathes, chisels, rasps, routers, screws, jigs, planes, tools, mills, sanders, oils (the list is near endless)…from all the leading brands and all at great show prices!

Whatever the reason if your a hobbyist, renovator, tradesperson, or an amateur or professional wood worker, or just an interested member of the public then the Adelaide Timber & Working With Wood is the show for you and it’s on again during October 2008 for three days only:
