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.
