Recent projects at the shed (May 2021)

Here’s a selection of projects that shed members have been working on during May 2021. They include Bob’s turned bowl, Alfred’s wooden toolbox and under-bed storage boxes for a local community member.

Bike recycling at Alison Homestead Men’s Shed

The organisers of the Rebikes101 organization at Alison Homestead Men’s Shed would like to remind everyone that if you have a bicycle you’d like to donate, it can be reconditioned and enjoy a new life in the community via charities, schools, clubs and other organisations.

Drop-off point is at the entrance to Alison Homestead, opposite the Old Wyong Milk Factory.

Large chairs for Central Coast Council

In 2019 Central Coast Council approached The Entrance Men’s Shed to construct two larger-than-life “big chairs” to be installed on Council land, under this program: https://www.centralcoast.nsw.gov.au/council/news/its-been-big-yeartake-big-seat .

Later in 2020 shed members constructed a further three big chairs and all five have now been installed on local beaches and foreshores. All the chairs have been decorated by Central Coast community groups and look terrific in their new homes.

A view on the Mediterranean

The President of the Towoon Bay SLSC recently approached the Men’s Shed to construct a window artwork showing a Greek Mediterranean scene. Phil was taken with the beauty of the region while visiting and wanted a reminder of that experience here on the Central Coast.

In December 2020 shed members designed and constructed a window with a large format photograph placed behind to complete the illusion.

Rocking horse passed down through generations

The Entrance Men’s Shed members recently completed refurbishment of a vintage rocking horse for a local family. The rocking horse was originally owned and used by the family Grandmother, who passed it onto her daughter. After approaching the men’s shed to refurbish the horse her daughter (now a mother herself) has passed it onto her young daughter.

This is a wonderful community family connection that shed members were delighted to support.

Pencil archway for local daycare centre

Shed members recently constructed and installed a large pencil-themed archway for a local daycare centre. The arch helps to reward and encourage reading at the Center.

The larger-than-life pencils are quite realistic in person!
