The Shed Magazine

The Shed Magazine is a publication from New Zealand, it's just the kind of thing I like to read and I've previously ordered back editions from their website.



"The Shed magazine is for all those people who have or aspire to have their own workspace. And to those who wish they could spend more time in their sheds. Sheddies come from all walks of life: professionals, tradespeople, students, artists, innovators. They have one thing in common the desire to turn a vision into something tangible. They all like to create. The Shed helps to bring together this diverse community to share techniques, ideas, information and news. The Shed covers engineering, woodworking, woodturning, plastics and everything in between. Its subjects are as diverse as its readership but it is always, challenging and inspired."

In the latest edition:

A test of compound mitre saws
Sealander Terry Roycroft’s floating car
Time for a milling machine?
How to make jandals
Introducing Arduino

Subscriptions and back editions can be ordered from their website and are a good price but due to the P&P being more than the cost of the magazine total for a single edition comes to just under £10. However there is an online edition of the magazine for a much smaller cost and there's also lots of free info on their website.
