A place where blokes can meet, share stories, learn and do stuff.

The Margaret River Men’s Shed Inc was established to support men’s psychological, physical, spiritual and intellectual needs by providing the opportunity for men to meet together in a workshop environment, to participate in practical activities, undertake projects, learn new skills and socialise with each other.

Founded in 2016, the Shed (with a foundation membership of exactly 101) developed plans, approved by the AMR Shire and built an architect designed new facility at 5 Shepherdson Place, Margaret River. This is adjacent to the Gloucester Park sporting precinct and accessed from Shepherdson Place off Station Road.
The Margaret River Mens Shed is committed to supporting the local community and undertakes projects for local institutions (School, Clubs, Sponsors and other organisations) as well as commissioned projects from local authorities and some private. All major projects are  costed and quoted in advance of execution.
Comprising some 530m2, the site now contains an operational workshop with 200m2 of workspace , external on-site parking, a fully fitted commercial kitchen, a large meeting and consulting  room,  and ablution facilities suitable for males, females and disabled persons. 
The approved plans incorporate further development of another 400m2 workspace, but the cost of this will require substantial further funding. When fully completed, the shed will include areas  for metal work and minor mechanical repairs. 
Presently, the workspace area accommodates  stand-alone and individually powered work benches plus an isolated wood lathe room containing two quality lathes. The workshop houses a wide variety of woodworking machinery. They include drop saws, bench saws, bandsaws, thicknesser plus a large inventory of power drills, circular saws, grinders, planers, sanders, routers, gas and compressed air operated nail guns as well a  collection of hand tools – tape measures, hand saws, hack saws, wood chisels, screwdrivers, squares, hammers, clamps and other tools with associated drills, cutters, blades, spanners, pliers, grips and sockets, nails and screws. Glues and paints are kept separately and safely in a custom designed storeroom. A shelving system was designed and installed to store recycled timbers.. Donated re3cycled Jarrah timber is stored offsite.
The new Shed commenced operations in November 2021.
