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. They also have handmade jewellery and other crafted items. Classwood is a family-owned and operated Tasmanian business.
