Take a peek in the Shed

HAVE you ever wondered what goes on at the Sorell Men’s Shed, located just down the Bus Mall from the old Sorell Railway Station?

If you are even slightly interested why not come along any weekday before 3pm and have a look around, chat to a few members, we will even give you a guided tour.

I joined the shed not quite two years ago, knowing just one other member.

I discovered a treasure trove of men with a wide range of expertise, any of whom are happy to share what they know and help me out at any time.

I’ve learnt to weld, learnt how to service my mower and whipper snipper and Jeff will show me how to sharpen chisels, drill bits, saws and even the blades on my thicknesser.

I now find myself helping to raise money for the shed by taking on simple construction projects that come to us from a wide variety of organisations.

Nothing, well almost nothing is beyond us, so if you have a project you can’t do come and talk to us.

A member who is a self-taught master of the art of marquetry has designed and built a magnificent lectern for the Sorell Council.

We have also built a sales cupboard for a Copping Community Support Organisation, picnic tables for an equestrian group, we make and sell cheese boards, beautiful timber pots for plants, cutting boards and other bits and pieces.

Check us out, you are always welcome.
