The Shed 67, June–July 2016

 The Shed 67 is riding high this issue on a spider bike that walks on feet. Ray Cleaver writes you have to see it to believe it. The creation of three wise men, Theo Jansen, Ron Schroer and Taranaki dairy farmer/inventor Dave Hunger. Bruce Clifford solves a shortage of shed space with an articulated file rack and Nathalie Brown introduces us to Bruce Watt of Weston near Timaru who makes machinery and tools just because he can. Jude shows how to build a wooden desk and Julian Matthews meets Clive Taylor whose love of Fords resulted in the Taylorville museum on the Kapiti coast. We have Part III of how to get the best out of your metalworking lathe and Mark Lester is a master craftsman when it comes to showcasing the unique qualities of New Zealand timber. Mark executes complex techniques such as intricate stringing, banding and marquetry. We get welding and create a properly engineered table for welding and give some useful insulation advice. Our electronics features are how to make the perfect night light and how to make your own PC board. Finally, choose your career after exploring the options in our trade training supplement.
