I needed a work-shop for my new lathe so I decided to grow one from scratch.
Here’s how to go about it.
First of all, go down to your local hard-centre or garden-ware and buy a packet of shed seeds.

Next, get your apprentice to water the seeds

The following morning when you come down for break-fast you will see how your new shed has grown.

Over the course of the next few days you can slowly turn your new shed into Heaven.

This is a happy bunch of projects / yokes in their new home, safe (hopefully) from the other
little apprentices who want to eat them.

And they all lived happily ever after. The End.

We know where you’ll be for a while.

Does your hard-centre have a garage stretcher? I need 2 of them.

Looks like a lot of fun!

Don’t tell my wife about those seeds, she’ll be looking for the “Dog House” ones (we don’t own a dog)!

Did you have to trade your cow for them?

Thank you for the suggestion, but I think that those seeds will only work with the help of leprechauns and a
certain young apprentice, Very nice shop, and I hope you and the apprentice enjoy it for many years.

Thanks folks. The shed is only 8×10 but is ideal for what I need.
Plus it doesn’t take over the whole garden.
Hairy – sold the last 2 garage-stretchers a week ago. Damn, why didn’t you say earlier?
AkBob – Your better half is a saint for putting up with you!!
Andrew – thats only for bean-stalks and they were fresh out of them too.
Kenn, Jamsie – they’re in the post. You should have them in about 2 weeks,
Gus – those damn leprechauns are getting harder and harder to catch. They’re wriggly little feckers too.
Cheers Russ.

Well done Murch, looks like you have everything you need. Your apprentice will really appreciate this. The humour and thought and just being there will impact the young fella big time. Confidence to pick up tools and have a go using them is sadly lacking in young boys these days.
