…. DIY  Fathers Day with a twist

Setting up for the DIY

Setting up for the DIY

Bunnings from Rydalmere approached the Parramatta District Men’s Shed Inc.  to assist run a DIY evening for Fathers day. The Idea was for our volunteer members to pool their vast expertise and help the children of Dad’s to make a simple item for their Dad.

BUT … Dad (or in one case POP) had to do all the dangerous work!!!!, whilst under supervision from our volunteers.

 

Choosing the product and materials??

Choosing the product and materials??

 

As with any project … it all starts with the selection of the product, the materials to make it from and the tools needed to make it. Our volunteers helped with the choices … in this case it was a “Bungee cord” rack to hold all sorts of odds and sods … like sunglasses, earphone cords from mobile phones, ties …….

Then it was time to start the real work, with some careful tuition from our volunteers,
