The latest project goes a long way towards creating more space in the Shed, but constructing two work benches. Most of the credit for their construction must go to our resident machinist, Doug and his assistant Mike. Others did haave a finger in the pie, but they are now both complete and in situ. the cupboard space below the work surfae can be utilised for storage of tools or materials and there i enough space for a middle shelf should this be required in the future. Does your workshop need a new workbench or storage space? We are open to construct bespoke workbenches for anyone who so wishes, at a reasonable price, of course. We are now ready to move on to our next project, the construction of Victorian garden planters. and at some stage another garden bench on a commission.

We are still open for business on three days a week, each from 10am to 12noon, on a Monday, Tuesday and a Wednesday. come along and get stuck in or just enjoy the banter and a cuppa. There is currently no membership fee to pay, although the a contibution to the tea/coffee kitty will not go amiss.

Various projects are now well under way. Here we see a brief selection of what went on at the Shed today, Wednesday 24th May.

The first event was training and practice on the Compound Mitre Saw. Secondly, our resident machinist, Doug, was illustrating the preparation on making a globe finial to go on a future project, that of manufacturing Victorian style planters for the garden. The image also shows the partially constructed workbench, of which we will make two initially, which is awaiting the delivery of timber to complete the job. The final picture is that of Doug demonstrating the techniques and Health and Safety issues of using a wood-turning lathe. I have never had the opportunity to use or learn lathe work, but today I had a go at turning one of the Victorian Planter finials, or at least to get the basic shape started.

Abergele men's Shed is now opening on a Tuesdsy morning as well as Mondays and Wednesdays, between 10am and 12 noon.

Why not come along and join us for a cuppa, biscuit and a chat with a chance to learn new skills and meet like-minded men. We all get along and there is some great new company to meet and befriend. Cheers, see you there.

Men's Shed's first D-I-Y- project for one of the members. The challenge was to build a re-cyclable log store that would allow free-flow ventilation to help season the logs but keep the worst of the weather at bay. Here are a few images of our intrepid heroes at work on the final stages, including the felt roofing of said log store. The next step is to give it a coat of weather-proofing before carting it off to its new abode. What's our next project? Wait and see!
