THE LAST ‘POST’

Yep, as previously indicated, we’ve decided to call it a day at timber+DESIGN online.

The ‘late March’ postings represent our final offering of unique, quirky and sometimes irreverent case studies, commentary and news items after nearly 10 years in print and various electronic formats.

Although the site will remain open until May, no new material will be added.

However, we have arranged for a selection of our case studies and features to appear progressively on the Australian timber information website www.woodsolutions.com.au

For more information about the closure of timber+DESIGN, please refer to our final editorial.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed being associated with this publication over the past five years. It has been a pleasure reading the varied and informative, yet very readable articles. I know I won’t be the only person to miss timber+DESIGN. All the best with your future endeavours Tony.

    Thanks very much for your timber rich stories over the years Tony. I looked forward to each edition and will miss it. Good luck with the fishing (and the twitching). Steve

    I have very much enjoyed timber+design magazine in all its formats and [am] yet to find an alternative to accessing valuable information that is close to my heart – timber. Being involved both in exterior and interior design you have given me many valuable lessons based on good best practice experience.
    Kind regards, Walter

      Thank you Walter – from what I am hearing, mine is not the only wood-related publication shutting the door. With some notable exceptions, the timber industry has never been very enthusiastic about spending money on promotion. I hope you find a suitable replacement, Tony

    I am very sad to see the end of timber+DESIGN mag. It is unique and luscious for want of a better word. I will certainly miss it.

    I have to agree with all the comments submitted recently. A great publication over the years with great photos and stories of the multiple uses of wood a great sustainable resource that really needs more promotion as an environmentally friendly product. All the best with your future challenges Tony.
