White Horse Brigade

Ray was busy painting all those rocking horses that he has been busy building the last few weeks.

He was not the only one today painting the horses. Seemed like every second bloke in the shed has a paint brush in hand today.

Well done guys they are looking good for the Open Day sale on 13 November.

Allan's rack

Allan was hard at work today glueing his wine rack. Its been a few weeks since Allan has been able to work on this project. After rescuing it from the Project Shelves he and Wayne worked to glue this structure. Next week he is planning to stain this and comlete it in time for Christmas.

going green

Anthony and Wayne were having some fun finishing off the "bird feeder" for Paul.

Green looks good for blending in with the environment. Hope the birds can find the seeds ...!!

Elf fences

Roy spent the day putting together these "elf fences" ...oops... garden borders for sale at the The Entrance Men's Shed Open Day on 13 November.
Once he was into the swing of things, there was no stopping him!!

Tissue Team

Ernie was hard at work in the shed today keeping the dust and detritus clear for Peter. Teamed up with Peter they were routing the slots for the tops of the Tissue Box projects for Kids Day Out.

Presidential Surprise

Geoff returned to the shed today and presented us with two purchases from a Men's Shed out west. The duck toy caused a few comments but it was the innocent looking money box that caused the most disruption.
Well there was a Presidential Surprise for Ian that had the shed in stitches.... pity there is no video of that one.
Now if we could just find one that works on five cent pieces for Peter!!

Shanes trucking

Shane has been working on this truck for some time now.

A much loved piece of craftwork this is for his son. There is enough space on the rear tray to land a helicopter or a small plane. Some of the earlier projects that he has completed.

shed stampede

These wild brumbies were headed for the front gates. Fortunately, they were locked securely and the stampede averted.

Ray has done a brilliant job of progressing the development of this herd.

All will be ready for the livestock auction on 13 November at the Shed Open Day and Baby Expo.

Members return

Ernie is back at The Shed this morning. He is sporting a walking stick but only needs it for a little balance.
He has been off for three months recovering from his fall. All mended, he was eager to get back to the scraper and do something useful. . . at 90 you can't have idle hands now can you.
Good to see you back on deck !!!
Dave was back from his trip this morning as well after enjoying his tour around NSW. Well until he returned home and develop pneumonia. . . ask him about the flight over Lake Eyre.
Weclome back to Ernie and Dave ... .
now where did Bob go .. oh thats right hes off to Vietnam.

Terry's Little Houses

Terry took on the job of making up the new batch of money box houses for the Central Coast Kids-in-Need project. The boxes are placed in shops and post offices for kindly customers to donate spare change to the Kids-in-Need charity.
Kids-in-Need raise funds for children and families faced with childhood cancers that face the difficulties of travel from the Central Coast to John Hunter or Royal North Shore Hospitals for treatment.
This is our second order for these money houses Terry has included the popular chimney stack and added door handles to this model.
