Thought I'd start a thread on some recent Mens Shed projects, some of which I've been involved in. A local school wanted us to make an 'anti-bullying tree'. The idea is that the pupils hang messages on the branches about bullying. All we had to work from was a photo of another tree made from pallet wood. We decided to make one from our own design & came up with this. It started life as a bog willow (black sally we call it) & extra willow branches were tenoned into the trunk. It sits on a plywood box with hidden castors underneath. The top of the box is covered in 3 colours of willow & the sides were engraved with positive words. It was launched earlier today at the school prize giving & our shed members were treated like royalty, they absolutely loved the tree! Another school saw pics of the tree & they want one too, for next week!
