Classwood specialises in finely crafted Tasmanian timber products, located at Ross in the Tasmanian midlands.
Classwood is housed in a heritage-listed drill hall (circa 1900) originally used during World War One for Light Horse Brigade training. Now, it features a display of wall murals, fine timber work and crafts. You can browse the range of products which include handcrafted kitchenware, vases, decorative timber boxes, wood-turned platters, bowls and carvings. Many of the pieces use specialty Tasmanian timbers such as Huon pine, blackwood, myrtle and sassafras. Classwood is a family-owned and operated Tasmanian business.
