“We are looking for local woodworkers who appreciate the quality of fine sub-tropical timber and the environmental and social benefits of growing and harvesting locally. Add simple design criteria with creative and talented local makers and we should have a fantastic array of pieces to choose from.” – Tony Kenway, Furniture Maker and Design Competition Judge
