Blanket chest by Tasmanian maker Toby Muir Wilson.
Having dominated the forests of southern Australia 38,000 years ago, Huon Pine now grows only in west and south west Tasmania. It takes 800 years for a tree to reach 20-30 metres. Durable, light, fine textured and oily its timber is easy to work and has a beautiful yellow colour. Widely used in ship-building, furniture making, joinery and turning, nowadays only limited quantities of this very slow growing tree are logged.
