Men’s Shed Labrador Inc.

Shed Projects


From time to time we undertake projects that help the broader community.  


One of the first has been to build Possum Boxes, which we have provided to Wildcare Australia and  also to the Orphaned Native Animal Raise & Release Association, both non-profit organisations based in Queensland

The possum boxes are constructed from either slash or hoop pine 17mm CD external ply.  They are assembled with stainless steel screws and finished with a clear, water-based product.

Weight 5kg  Height 415mm   Width 250mm   Depth 250mm

Current Prices (will vary with material costs):

* Private sales - $40. 00  

     *     Accredited Wild Life Carer Associations - $23. 00


We also produced a range of Toys for distribution at Christmas.  Some shots of the toy making team hard at work are shown below


In December 2010, we made 250 Crosses, pictured below, and presented them for distribution to young people attending the National Christian Youth Convention, held at the Gold Coast


We build Duck Houses to order.  Pictures of some we have built are below.  Contact us if you have special requirements
