When only the best will do!
This gallery is the display centre for the works of the wood artisans in the district of Canberra..
Each item is a one off, and is unreplaceable.
The coffee table is made out of Tasmanian Black Hearted Sassafras timber, and can be purchased for a modest A$12,000.00. There wasn’t a very long que to buy this particular item.
Captured at 1/8th of a second, f8.0 and ISO-2500.

    This brings back wonderful memories. I was in this shop many years ago and bought two scarves and a wood letter opener. The artwork in this gallery is outstanding.

Looks like an amazing place, and you captured it beautifully John, but $12,000.00 I think I will pass, lol..

WOW! I agree. That coffee table is really beautiful, John.
And this is a marvellous indoor capture with soft and warm light showing the color of the wood splendidly.
