The Auckland Community Shed is based on the MENZSHED ideals, with separate woodwork and engineering sections, where people can continue hobbies or learn woodwork/engineering. We also assist local community projects by making items for other Not For Profit organisations e.g. rifleman bird boxes for a research project and a kitchen play unit for a preschool. We are also interested in undertaking a few projects to raise funds for further development. E.g. the Shed constructed a Dance-O-Mat for a council event, frames for billboard posters and partially restored a centreboard yacht.
The kitchen and social room always welcomes you, for a chat and a cupper. Your first visit is free, but many become ardent friends for life and continue to learn new skills as well as passing on skills to others.
