Maleny Wood Expo: From Chainsaw to Fine Furniture 30 April - 1st May 2011, is two days of country fun at Maleny Showgrounds in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
The expo showcases beautiful native timbers through the work of local wood artisans. Highlights include the Wootha Prize Exhibition, boutique Maleny produce, eco-friendly alternatives for home and garden, and environmental displays.
See Stan Ceglinski demonstrate age-old skills used by white settlers who came to harvest the Blackall Range's mighty red cedars. Mobile millers convert massive tree trunks into slabs and planks with high-powered machinery and friendly camaraderie. See lovingly crafted products by furniture and toy-makers, musical instrument and box-makers, whittlers, carvers and everything in between - all from sustainably harvested native, weed and recycled timbers.
Smell the spicy aroma of newly milled timber and watch live demonstrations of chainsaws, woodworking, trade tools and more.
