Welcome to the Hornsby Men's Shed
We aim to attract both male and female members who have a common interest in working with wood. Our members gain and improve woodworking skills through the free exchange of knowledge and assistance. Members work on their own projects or help charities by making toys, furniture and nesting boxes.

Thanks to Ian Raper, 15 members plus guests had a unique experience during the outing Garden Island, both a naval base and public picnic grounds in Sydney Harbour. We met at Pier 2, Circular Quay, to catch the 10.05am Watsons Bay ferry for the short ride to the island (it is not strictly an island […]Read More
As one nearing ‘three score years and ten,’ it is hard to know how much to include in such an article about myself, the good, the bad or the ugly? Since finishing my coffin, I did wonder if this summary of my life could complete the set by forming part of my Eulogy. My twin […]Read More

The shed has been a life line especially after my wife died. It has been an opportunity to continue to use my engineering skills and enjoy the camaraderie of the group. Tony B.
The opportunity to make a small difference and help others with their woodturning and at the same time enjoy their company is priceless. John M.
Enjoyable for the soul as well as the body. Good to talk about common interests with like-minded men. Greg C.
The HWMS is the friendliest and most efficiently operated organisation with which I have been associated, with a number of members voluntarily offering their time and expertise to ensure this continues. Despite the complexity of the workshop it operates smoothly - repairs and maintenance of machines and tools is prompt and a programme of replacement and upgrading is apparent. From a personal viewpoint the Shed provides an important social venue for me and I never cease to be amazed at the imagination and skill displayed by members with their projects and their willingness to share these. I trust the Shed can continue to operate as efficiently and effectively for years to come. Jim K.
