About our shed
Established in 1990, Waverley Woodworkers is a centre for all who have an interest in woodwork as a hobby and wish to belong to a community of fellow enthusiasts.
Open 7 days a week, we are a very active community club with over 100 active members.
Our members regularly win prizes at various exhibitions and competitions.
We have a full range of equipment available for use whatever you're creating.
We provide a safe place where local community can gather and create woodcraft items.
Members can participate in and contribute to community events or undertake projects that benefit the community.
Thanks to the City of Monash who have constructed a brand new purpose-built facility at the rear of the Central Reserve grandstand in Glen Waverley. Entering from Springvale Road, follow the road around to the left to the rear of the southern end of the grandstand.

— "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.
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.
