Garage Sale / Open Days
- MIndy Wall has commissioned the shed to build a replica of her own doll house that she had as a kid.
This is not the first time we have been asked to reproduce a favourite doll house from the past.
Alan Larkin has spent the last few months reproducing a doll house that once was a present from the client's grandparents.
- The rocking horse built by Peter Machin and Glen Cox has been crated and dispatched to Peter’s great grandson in the USA.

PRESIDENTS REPORT JULY 2019
Wrap Up - Men's Health Week 2019
To kick off the week AMSA Men's Health Project Coordinator Stuart Torrance visited Cessnock Men's Shed & Community Garden (NSW) and then headed down the highway to attend the Western Riverina Men's Shed Health Gathering hosted by Leeton Shire Men's Shed (NSW).
AMSA Events & Volunteer Coordinator Marty Leist was also out and about - visiting Coral Coast Men's Shed Men's Health Gathering (Qld) & the Carina Men's Shed Men's Health Week Expo (Qld). Both events attracted a great crowd, covering all things men's health over a number of different activities during the week.
Backed by our partner CRC Industries & the Penrite Racing Team, we launched the first phase of our refurbishedSpanner in the Works? at the Darwin leg of the Supercars Championship - the AMSA logo even featured on the Penrite Racing Car for the occasion! With the support of CRC Industries, we've teamed up with Healthy Male to completely refurbish, improve and expand the reach of Spanner in the Works?.

Day trip to Slim Dusty Museum
"The day started at 8:00am at the shed and after "seat allocations" were made the convoy took off for Kempsey. We arrived at the Slim Dusty Centre approximately 90 minutes later and were greeted by a volunteer of the centre who took our group photo and directed us to the function area where we were treated to a Devonshire Tea with yummy scones, jam and cream. During the morning tea we were entertained with an old time singalong. After the singalong we toured the fantastic memorabilia section of the centre which I can highly recommend. The amount of items from Slim's career on display is amazing. It includes all his gold and platinum records together with all his golden guitar awards. Much of his life's history is displayed with personal items from Slim's travels.
Next port of call was "Lou's Café" at Kempsey for a very enjoyable lunch only marred by Neville having a lime malted milkshake!!@@#!
After lunch we headed for Nulla Nulla which is where Slim was raised. The home is about 50Km west of Kempsey and about 25Km north of Bellbrook. The home stands as it was when Slim lived there and I believe that it was purchased back by the family after having been sold some time ago.
From Nulla Nulla we headed across country to Taylors Arm and the "Pub With No Beer". Most of us proved that it was not true and a refreshing brew was had to celebrate a very enjoyable day.
After a long day we finally arrived back in Coffs about 4:30pm, but every minute of the day was a great experience.
A big thankyou goes to Ken Howe and Warren Sanger who organised the day and I can highly recommend to members to join in these outings when available in the future. Having a social day out with fellow members is a great way to bond and experience the mateship of fellow members. Many yarns were told and lots of laughs added to the day."
