  • Slim Dusty

    G'day all,

    For those interested, here is a clip of one his more modern songs
    Slim Dusty - No1 Lights On The Hill! - YouTube

    The cutting is posted here http://www.scrollsawer.com/forum/fre...aits/41626.htm

        I like his sound, too. When watching the video, I kept thinking, "Who is this guy? I must have missed someone in American country and western singers." But I kept noticing that his truck was always on the left side of the road so I finally figured out he could not be from the USA.

          Thanks people,
          Slim is a real Aussie Icon, even those who do not like Country music still know of Slim, he's a bit like a Musical John Wayne, here in that sense. Even if you don't like his movies, you still know of him and respect him.

          Here's another Slim song about my Town, Kalgoorlie.

            I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

            If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

            The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
