Alternate Woodshow Wrap

The Alternate Show has come to an end, the sausages are all gone, and wisps of sawdust are all that remain to show where the demonstrations were.  Even the typically pristine Ideal Tools display had some (I swear it wasn’t me who rounded all the edges of their timber with the 1.6mm radius plane 😉 )

There were lots of bargains, with specials up to 40% off (not counting things that were thrown is as freebies to sweeten a deal or other).

Some pretty amazing timbers were on display (and available for purchase), including some very impressive ebony boards (musical grade).

  1. The demos at the show were quite nice. It was odd seeing Stu in real life. I was going to say Hi but Stu was constantly being trailed by a group of fan boys 🙂 so I didn’t get a chance.

    The lack of any real specials was a bit of a let down (could get cheaper prices from overseas + shipping or elsewhere in Aus) would have got some stuff anyway because I drove all the way out there (traffic was horrid on the southeastern) except they hardly had any stock of any of the larger machines.
