The Shed 40, December–January 2012

In this end of year Issue 40, Graeme Pederson decides its time he had a Contiki and he's not going to buy one, he's gonna build one! One of our projects this month is how to make a knife and Leif Haseltine shows us how to before Jude give you the dos and don'ts on exterior house painting. We head to the shed of Alan Sutton who has the skills and the desire to use an old Mini as the cab for his truck before we pay a visit to the Australian Working with Wood Show. Our Eco designer Fred Braxton shows us how to keep our house cool and protect it from the summer sun and Mark Beckett builds an Arduino-driven word clock.
