My Husband's Hobby....not bad hobby eh......

My husband enjoys woodworking in his spare time, below some of his woodworks
and some information about Tasmanian wood. His Tasmania map clocks are especially popular.
He also makes maps of Australia and he has built me an outside kitchen (for me to tumis curry and sambal) and several book shelfs for my recipe books( thanks darl, I need another shelf for my recipe
books please )

Some information about Tasmanian timber

Blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon) is a very well know striking acacia, used largely for its decorative effect. It has been recognized since the 19 century as valuable for wood turning, cabinet and furniture making and panelling. Other uses include organs, pianos and veneers.

Celery Top Pine
Celery Top Pine (Phyllocladus aspleniifolius) is a well know Tasmanian native conifer. It is prized for its durability, stability and lovely fine-grained texture.

Huon Pine
Huon Pine (Lagarostrobos franklinii) is a native conifer and one of the earliest trees to evolve in Tasmania. It has been used in ship-building in Tasmania since 1815s and is highly valued as a timber for fine furniture.

    Sharil>> Thanks mate. I have a heart for wood and I love to make it show the beauty of the natural product. The wood is very simple pine but with the loving treatment I can give it, it looks like a million dollars. Poppy
