 It has been quite a while since our last post due to the covid situation and government restrictions on trading etc. During that time it was decided to sidestep making toys for children. Instead we are now concentrating on the manufacture of various wildlife housing (possum/ bat boxes etc.) and nesting/shelter boxes for birds. 

Also we are making many household items for everyday use.  


Above is just a small selection
of wildlife boxes we are making for the community

 Below are other items we make for everyday use plus limited games and toys

 Essential oil stands of various designs and sizes


A members son who is employed by a large painting company based on the Central Coast asked if the  Shed would be interested in making a trophy from a large stop valve salvaged from  a industrial sprinkler system. The trophy would be presented to the painter who had driven over the sprinkler system and had caused considerable damage and expense.

It was to be awarded at their Christmas party as a reminder to the unfortunate painter to pay more attention when driving, and a salutary lesson to other staff members of the damage and costs involved through inattention.

While the trophy was awarded and received in good humour a lesson was certainly learnt, and the unfortunate painter has acquired a new nickname.

 We recently had a lady come to see us with an antique cutlery set. The box had deteriorated beyond repair. She asked if we could make a replica as near as possible to the original. Neil Elliot took on the job and here is the finished product. 

Another job well done Neil
