If there is one timber that is unique to Australia, it's the honey coloured Huon Pine. We are often asked to source gifts specifically made from this wood and I thought we'd share a couple of gift ideas we have used recently.
In a nutshell, Huon Pine is Australia's oldest living tree and can be found in the South Western corner of Tasmania. This conifer has been known to live for 3,000 years and is a greatly prized timber.
In Australia, we have some very skilled wood artisans who cleverly turn pieces of this beautiful timber into well-priced, uniquely Australian contemporary gifts.
Two gifts which are popular and valued at $40 each are below. These Huon Pine salad hands / servers is a practical gift which can be used daily. A second option are these small, modern timber & stainless steel round wooden boards which fit nuts, fruit or quince past nicely.
Boxed beautifully, these Huon Pine gifts can be made in large quantities for any event. We can also create a story card for your clients describing the provenance of the gift.
And if it's a different timber you would prefer, these can be made in Blackwood, Sassafrass and Myrtle as well.
