The Expo™ is the only natural wood veneer acoustical panel system that offers balanced sound absorption with high frequency sound diffusion. WoodEx is the ideal platform for wood manufacturers, traders and suppliers of the entire wood industry to showcase new technology, techniques and resources. 2016 marks 20 years of the iconic Maleny Wood Expo From Chainsaw To Fine Furniture, held over three days in early May at the beautiful Maleny Showgrounds in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Begun in 1996 to promote sustainable use of our beautiful native timbers through the work of local and regional wood artisans the Expo is now recognised as one of the best wood shows in Australia. In line with this aim, all wood exhibitors are required to use sustainably harvested native timbers, weed or recycled timbers. Wander at your leisure through lovingly crafted timber products and talk to the craftsmen and women who’ve created them – from furniture-makers and toy-makers, musical instrument-makers and box-makers, whittlers, carvers and everything in-between. View the 2016 Wootha Prize exhibition – themed “Against the Grain” in 2016 – where entrants vie for over $4,500 in prize money. Glimpse the skills of the early timber-cutters who first opened up the Blackall Range, and see the best in both handcrafted traditional and high tech tools. Smell the spicy aroma of newly milled timber and catch live demos of chainsaw carving, woodworking, trade tools and more.
There’s hands-on woodwork for the whole family with WoodShed Workshops and Woodwork for Women. Plus there’s gourmet local produce to take home, native plants to encourage birds and wildlife to your garden, and displays showcasing environmental initiatives in the region to preserve our natural biodiversity. A look at some of the people, places and events that have shaped Landcare in Queensland and Australia.
Green Nomads is a casual environmental volunteering program targeting Australia's large transient population.
During last year’s WoodExpo 2011 at the New England Home Show, we featured a blog on Kevin Mack Fine Furniture. This Lunar Burl Side Table is built with maple, tiger maple and cherry wood for a stunning final effect.
The Side Board commonly known as a Buffet or Server is made of a tiger maple interior with a walnut exterior.


Kevin’s chair also has a 3 color tone style with white oak, cherry and the added leather tone for the back and seat cushions.
Thanks and credits to Randy Johnson of the American Woodworker and Woodwork Magazines for the use of their photo references in the video. After steel and glass, we take a look at the great pieces of architecture featuring wood that lined the Cardo and Decumanus, channelling sustainability, age-old knowhow and new technology. Wood is synonymous with sustainability, craftsmanship and low-tech but also highly advanced construction techniques, and was the material of choice for many of the Expo buildings.
These included the Columbian Pavilion, designed by Studio Cardenas and paying homage to Christopher Columbus, who sailed there from Italy, forging a dual economic and sentimental bond between the two countries. Friuli company Legnolandia was chosen to construct a building that would express the theme of eco-sustainability and used certified silver fir wood from the Dolomite forests in Friuli.
Designed by Argot ou La Maison Mobile with a structure by Legnolandia, the Save the Children Pavilion can be described as a “village”, illustrating a hypothetical global location where the organisation is active. The Save the Children Village for Expo 2015 centred on the search for simple materials such as fir wood and sheet metal, to which was added a floor alternating concrete and beaten earth.
The Japan Pavilion, designed by Atsushi Kitagawara, revisited traditional Japanese timber construction methods that adopt a compressive strain method in which single building elements are connected by coupling and joining systems to deliver the required support. Wood and glass were the materials chosen for the four towers of the Confooderatio Helvetica Pavilion: 12 metres tall, they contain water, coffee capsules, apple rings and salt, all for the benefit of the visitors. The American Food 2.0 Pavilion – United to Feed the Planet, designed by the architect James Biber and, again, built by Nussli, was a simple, lightweight structure resembling a hay barn. Wood also featured in the Clusters devoted to BioMediterraneus, Islands, Sea and Food, Arid Zones, Cereals and Tubers, designed by the international Workshop of Milan Polytechnic and built by Rubner.
Herzog & De Meuron also opted for wood in the three pavilions of Slow Food, an international non-profit association committed to restoring the value of food and closely linked to respect for the environment and ecosystem. Even kids can join in a Cool Stool Workshop or the Kids Space where kids can make and take home their own masterpiece.
This includes groups such as, Landcare inc Coastcare, Bushcare, Catchment Associations, Species-specific protection groups and Friends of groups.
The 3 tone colors designed into this sturdy item are mahogany, white oak with a Danish corded wrapped top.


Your attention to detail, knowledge and dedication to the creation of handcrafted furniture is unlimited to what your heart, hands and mind have accomplished. Architecturally speaking, the structure comprised approximately 1,500 cubic metres of lamellar wood, spread across several levels and modules, each representing a different climatic zone.
The outer panels in fir and bamboo were produced in a workshop with the participation of foreign children in the Civico Zero programme. The resulting structure, developed by Galloppini Legnami, is highly resistant to earthquakes and forms the basis of what are sometimes called “living” constructions. Built by Nussli, the towers were not restocked, prompting a gradual lowering of the load platforms and an invitation to reflect on the exhaustibility of food supplies.
These were exhibition spaces grouping more than 30 countries for a total of 43 buildings in 4 theme areas, where each shared theme was interpreted in a single architectural design. Rubner produced a total of 466 cubic metres of lamellar larch to construct the pavilions – three houses designed by the Swiss architects in the form of archaic triangular timber structures and referencing Lombard farmhouses. The Mack attack is back at the 2012 show with 5 new fantastic entries showing off his creativity and woodworking expertise.
As shown in the video, Kevin learned to make this corded weave with the assistance of The Caner’s Handbook from Woodcraft.
We look forward to seeing you and your next outstanding craftsmanship venture at WoodExpo 2013.
A delightful “journey” concept on the facade of the installation employed vertical timbers to feature picturesque images of the locations, offering a sensorial trip exploring the country. The Pavilion is in the form of a 3D wooden grid  and was constructed using a mix of traditional building methods, modern structural analysis and the so-called compressive strain method, in an example of innovative architecture that fully expresses the fusion of traditional culture and advanced technology. A main walkway, built from recycled timber from American boardwalks, led visitors through the pavilion to the second floor and the exhibition. Each of the timber structures, mounted in just two months, was custom-built according to the distinctive traits of the zones of the world represented and had a communal multifunction area.
