Research / Re: SWPS Corowa (Murray River, Australia)
« Last post by derekwarner_decoy on Today at 09:25:21 AM »
Well, we have quantities of short sawn timber packs that could certainly be destined to be nailed together into storage/transport box's

The question of for what goods remains unknown, however the box's would I think have been assembled at a location close to the source of the product

My earliest memory of bulk vegetables being transported and displayed in Vegetable Co-operative, were in robust woven cane baskets.......

Every Australian home garage in the 50's & 60's would have a few wooden Banana box's used as storage containers.....many a task in the garage or garden was with Kids sitting on Banana box's & splinters in your backside

Freash fish from the trawlers was also landed in slightly smaller sized robust woven cane baskets........when displayed at the Fish Co-op on beds of ice behind glass trays??

Derek

PS...the woven cane basket below is listed as 60cm x 70cm [2' x 2 1/4'] ...so are about the shape & size from my memory

It is not difficult to make this long, flat hull in sections. At first the whole hull in one piece should be build. Then two similar strong plywood frames connected with bolts and screws will glued into the hull like in the pictures, between the frames lays a thin plywood pile in the thickness of the saw-blade. As far the construction is fixed, it`s easy to disconnect the frames with saw and two sections are finished.

Any idea what those boxes are for? Fish maybe or fruit/veggy?

That sounds truly challenging...especially making it in sections.

How will you handle that to ensure secure joints and watertightness?

Yes Walter....maybe my 3" is a little oversize :nono , and maybe they made box's from thick timber

I think box timber [or the like] is the correct answer  :clap

Hi Roderick. Could the timber piles be for making boxes?. If you look at the piles of crates they are about the same shape and size. Regards, Walter

I'll take a guess & say the wood pile of pieces is the boiler fuel?
