Too often we forget to photograph some of the clever stuff that is done in our Sheds. Please send some in!
This was today (28/3/22) at Staithes Shed. Malcolm has whiled some time away at home to make Staithes Shed a (very) lightweight, adaptable, versatile workbench.
In stepped Jim with a vacuum hose to interview Malcolm as he extolled the virtues of this amazing piece of kit made from three quarters of a sheet of ply (plus glue which Malcolm is renowned for).
Whitby Shed – The Wood Story
Continuing the theme of creative work (on a smaller scale than Malcolm) Rob Shilson has written up an account from Whitby Town’s point of view.
“Woodworking has always been a popular activity at Whitby Shed with many members taking an active interest. We have two professionals, Tony and Ray, whilst amateurs like Rob, Bryn and Betty look on and learn!
Two relatively recent events have inspired and motivated the team.
Firstly we were donated a huge amount of good quality timber from John, a resident of Goathland.
Secondly we purchased a planer/thicknesser.
