Parramatta District Men’s Shed Inc. were asked by the Local Government and Shires Association to produce some 64 picture frames to house the Excellence in Environment Award certificates. The Frames had to be made out of recycled materials, glazed from recycled or seconds glass, and made to look old but New!!!! A simple brief……

Men at the shed combined their skills to recycle some off-cuts of marine plywood, glued them together to make the thickness required, edged the frames on a router and sanded the rough timber to eliminate splinters but not the rustic look. The frames were then put under a “blow torch” to create a weathered look. Then some lacquer to seal them. Backing boards were chamfered and the certificates mounted ready for final presentation to the lucky winners.
