Thought some of you older guys may be interested in this- It's been going here for about 15 years here, not a member yet but approaching THAT certain age  :mad: .

Great thing, especially for single guys etc.

Thanks Dave, that's the 'official ' website--I don't know how that happened, did the 'Mods' modify the address :oooh:  :? ??? OR was it me???

 

Here is what I meant to post -   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Men%27s_Sheds  --I just thought some guys would be interested in the history and how well it seems to be working here (and in N.Z - U.K  - Ireland) --Is there any in Indonesia yet??  I think there is a bit of this going on there too   :tipsy:  .

I thought this was gonna be a thread where folks posted pix of their workshops.... I can't wait to see what Mark is going to chime in here with!

Ah, I get it now. Didn't really understand the first time around. Certainly nothing like that here, unless you count billiard halls :)

Unlike a strip club mens sheds give men in a community that dont have the facilities of a well fitted out workshop, a chance to get together to pass on their knowledge, skills and experiences with others while also doing projects that benifet the community they live in. They also help otherwise disengaged and "forgotten " men to feel a sense of worth. They are playing an important role and filling a gap that exisits in a lot of communities.
