The Shed 55, June–July 2014

 In Shed 55 we meet Joe Parkes who is keeping the art of the blacksmith alive and well in the Naki and enjoy the sport of power tool racing. There's Part II of both our basic cabinetry and how to weld series - MIG welding. Stu makes us a stunning coffee table in his shed and we visit one of Australia's best and first Men's Sheds in Hackham West, South Australia. Film director Peter Jackson shares his vintage plane collection with us and we get working with software defined radio in our electronics section. Stuart Reid gives us our project this issue, making a simple outrigger canoe and Ian Stewart wants us to get making models instead of watching TV!
