Taupo Community Men’s Shed

MENZSHED NZ Status: Member


Come to our well equipped workshop at AC Baths Avenue, Taupo and share skills, hobbies, interests or simply enjoy the company of other blokes.  We’re open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.  Of paramount importance is adherence to the safety rules that apply to premises such as ours, to guarantee members go home with all their limbs intact.  We have active supervisors each of our open days, to assist lesser experienced members in their projects.  While we recognize that our nomenclature is Men’s Shed, we are also gathering an ever growing number of women, keen to learn woodwork.

During 2016/17 several public service projects have gone out the door such as ply wood Christmas trees that go to schools to be painted and then displayed in the streets of Taupo. We made giant letters (over two meters tall) as a display for the Iron Man race, a rocking horse for the hospital, archery stands for the archery club, a beautifully renovated ancient tricycle, a zither, a harp, a mandolin, stands for placards at the cat exhibition, carved horse-ranch gate sign, wood turned items galore, a huge split kauri dining table completely repaired and looking like new.
