Our cover story in Shed Issue 38 is a visit a hidden gem of a shed in Parnell central Auckland that houses NZ's biggest collection of steam engines and meet the enthusiasts restoring some important Kiwi heritage.

We show a step by step guide to make a set of drawers for keeping your shed bits and pieces tucked away and remind you to preserve your hearing when using power tools.
