      G’day Craig
      I suggest you drop by the shed for a chat and a look around. The best time would be on a Tuesday. Wednesday or Thursday between 10am and 12 noon. The address is 25 Marban Way Wattleup, about 500m from the Ten Mile Well intersection on Rockingham Road. Look forward to meeting you …

      Hello Rosemary.
      Having just received a significant grant to purchase tools we are quite well equipped at the moment. Thankyou for your kind offer, and I trust that you can find an alternative home for your fathers tools.

      Hi Linda … I know that shed members have been known to build wooden toys but am unsure if they are still being produced. You could try calling the shed on 0894371130.
