Projects and activities

Many quality items are made by the men of Iona West Men's Shed Inc. The men all have different skills and by working together they have produced some beautiful items as shown below. 

Where possible all items are made from recycled and donated timber.

Should you require something restored (refer our Restored Furniture page) or if you would like something made and we don't show it, do not hesitate to call us or pop in for a look at our facilities and discuss your requirements.

We are located at 7 Brooks Street , West Mackay behind the Uniting Church.
