Keith Linnett’s family built the lodge where thousands of people honey mooned in the sixties and seventies. Fred was one of them!
Keith met his wife Nellie at school on Kangaroo Island and they have been together ever since. We asked Keith, a fit healthy ex-crayfisherman in his seventies why he started working timber. He said he’d tried setting precious gemstones, but that hadn’t worked out. One day Keith helped a bloke whose trailer had broken down and was gifted “a whole heap of Queensland timber.”
The rest, as they say, is pretty much history.
The first artesan objects Keith Linnett brought to us were polished tables, but it didn’t take much convincing for Keith to shape his timber jewellery boxes from local timber grown on
the island. Among his most beautiful are some worked from off cuts of the Mulberry Tree on the “Queenie” hotel lawn. This tree is said to have been struck from stock grown from the Old Mulberry Tree planted at Reeves Point in 1836.
