    Totally agree with all you have said Gab. I too will be there on Friday and hope to catch up with you again. I know I will enjoy my day and maybe take home a few goodies as it's only a couple of days after my birthday. It will be interesting to see the new format. Got my earlybird ticket and ready to go.

    That's pretty much how I see it too Gabriel.

    I will keep an eye out for you on the Friday.

    As I see it the new organizers have a bigger job rebuilding the Melbourne show than any other because the previous people did more damage to their own brand here than anywhere else. If we don't give them a chance we won't have a show to look forward to each year.

    Don't think Wooddust will take over where the TWWW shows leave off - they are two totally different beasts.I went out to the Wooddust marketplace this morning. There was no timber for sale at all and I think maybe 10 businesses selling stuff. No big displays of machinery or tools - it was all very light scale. It was good for what it was and I bought some items from Chris Vesper and Henry Eckert and had a good catch-up with other exhibitors I know as well, but that event is not, and is not pretending to be the Woodwork show. It's main purpose is to run woodworking classes.

    I am going to this years Timber tools and Artisans show with an open mind and if nothing else I will enjoy catching up with some friends for a chat

    Guess who is just coincidentally having a 3 day sale and demonstrations on the same weekend now? Never open on a Sunday any other weekend of the year.

    ...And last year.
    I wonder if they will have stock of what I want though?

    There are many brands excluded from the sale. I’d rather go to the show and support those firms who support us.
