Shedders undertake their own projects at the shed.
The photo at right shows a wooden clock built by two members as a personal challenge.
Individual or small group projects are a central theme of the shed movement. By undertaking new and interesting projects, men are able to keep themselves busy, learn new skills and draw on the experience of other shedders. While working on their own projects, sheddies interact with others, share ideas and hopefully encourage others.
Some of our Shedders are willing and able to act as teachers or mentors in particular project areas. They won't do the project for you, but they will help you plan and carry out the project so you develop the necessary skills and knowledge to do it yourself next time. Members can help with the following basic areas in particular:
The projects featured here are designed to inspire members and others looking for something to do, but they are also a good illustration of what sheddies do when at the shed.
