The Shed 58, December 14–January 2015

 In Shed 58 our project is how to build a Kontiki at home from scratch and we meet Taranaki farmer/inventor Dave hunger who has an appetite for building crazy pedal-powered inventions. Read Part V of our basic welding technique series and in Stu's Shed, we set-to making a barbeque trolley. Vik Oliver demonstrates how to cast in metal from printed moulds in our 3D printing feature and in Part V of our basic carpentry series, Sid Askey shows us how to complete the finishing of a bedside cabinet. We head to huge wood fan, Brian Woodlands shed in the Adelaide Hills and we give you a guide to what exemptions are currently allowed by The Building Act, Schedule 1. Rod Kane encourages us to enjoy the hobby of model aircraft while Stuart Johnston introduces us Kaizen in wood (improvement in Japanese) sharing his truly stunning wooden toys. In Electronics this issue Jude shows us how a new photoboard makes electronics easier before John Lee shows how to make a motorised frame to shake plants dirt free.
