About our shed

About Us

The Samford Area Men's Shed extends an open invitation to all men, young and old, to drop in, see what goes on, meet the other men and enjoy the companionship the shed offers. You don't have to be a skilled craftsman to join us.

Our shed has been operating in the Samford region for ten years. It now boasts a fully equipped workshop where skilled and unskilled men can share time with each other and work together on projects.
Members make a variety of handcrafted items or may also work on their own personal projects.They also repair and restore furniture.

Our Vision

A community of well adjusted men with a sense of well being that connects with each other and the wider community.

Positive impacts


"I've found a great group of mates"

Mateship is an important pillar of every Men’s Shed – first and foremost the shed is a place for men to knock about with a group of like-minded mates.


“I give back to the community”

Men’s Sheds are vital community investments delivering programmes and activities that foster community spirit and contribute to building a more inclusive Australia.

Health & Wellbeing

“My health and wellbeing is better because I'm a Shedder”

Many shedders experience improved mental health outcomes. Men (and women) involved at their local Shed report increased self-esteem through participation and learning new skills; de-stigmatisation of experiencing mental health and de-stigmatisation of prevalent social issues related to mental health.

Watch — More than just a shed

The Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) is the national service provider supporting more than 1,200 Men’s, Women’s and Community Sheds and is recognised as one of Australia’s largest male-based community development organisations.

AMSA was established in 2007 by a collection of Australian independent community-based Men’s Sheds to represent, support and promote the Men’s Shed movement. It was founded on the principle of sharing information between sheds and those communities wishing to establish and operate a Men’s Shed. It acts as a central hub for information exchange.
