The School House workshop

This page will follow the developments as we create our new larger and more accessible workshop.

August 2022:

We reached a milestone down at the shed this week when we ran the dishwasher for the first time!

Proper clean mugs from now on!


There were nine of us on Tuesday working to get the "shed" finished (in between drinking mugs of tea and marvelling at the dishwasher)

The electrics are done complete with wall sockets and emergency stops plus we are now able to meter our power usage separate from the main School building.

Just a bit of touching up to do where the old wiring was removed.

Rob Heels fitted a new switch on the #2 w/working lathe and the outside courtyard is getting a coat of paint while the weather holds fine.

There are a few things to finish in the kitchen, an external power socket to be fitted and then we should be about ready to start assembling our new benches and working out the layout.

For everyone storing shed stuff in their home workshops, it won't be long now........!

Well time has past and a lot of work done by many keen members.

Our new, larger, more accessible workshop is now open and operational.
