Aussie sheds

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

Time for a Geography lesson, FarmBoy. Oz is in the Southern Hemisphere and its currently the dead of winter there. Depending upon where in Oz he is, I suspect its rather chilly. In fact, his beautiful bride, Suzy is bundled up in a knit cap and fleece. Probably not welding gear ;)


You are dead right, it's bloody freezing. The great plan of building during the Summer and Autumn just didnt work due to council and permit issues. Now it's up early, brave the sub zero Yarra Valley Wintry mornings and get working. Generally thaw out by around ten and then you can feel your hands and do straight welds.

Just how exactly cold does it get in Aussie? As I'm sure you know they don't cover the climate in Australia anymore, in fact the only thing we were taught is that it was an island for British prisoners. I also started watching Outback truckers a little so that doesn't help when the whole show is filmed during the summer months.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

Outback truckers is exactly where it says in the "outback", much like a desert 99.9% of the year is 40°c +(up to 50°c) during the day and about 0°c at night when the sky is cloud free... the .1% its possibly raining!

So yeah hot all year round pretty much, this would be 2/3 of Australia(WA/SA/NT and upper Queensland) the mid to lower eastern states(NSW/Victoria/Tassie) are cooler to freezing at times.

Oh well, I make do with about 30' x 32'

That's how i feel in my high school shop. It's about 300 sq ft. bigger than yours but that is split between woods and metals and with various people. Come up to the farm and have a 80'x60' and 20' tall shop I think to work in with an office and bathroom. Except most of that room is filled with machinery and junk.


80'x60' would be perfect for me :)

This summer I've split my time between shop welding, mobile welding, construction, dump truck driving - so my "work space" changes often.

Love watching stuff like this come together and LOVE big sheds.

I built my own shed, too, but I've outgrown it. The goal is to move to the foothills in the next few years and build a monster shed so that I can fill it up with tools and motorbikes.

Keep posting those pics!

Just for giggles whilst I'm working on one of the big 250UB32 columns for the shed, he's what I got up to on the weekend. Drove to a country property outside Ballarat and picked up this monster. 3800 long, 400 deep and over 1650 high. Probably close to 450 kgs. Now suspended on welded brackets and chains.

What do you have to lift something like that in your shed
