In the November–December 2017 issue of The Shed we get ready for all that summer fun outside the shed and get building a Cold Smoker Barbeque out of a couple of metal drums. Evan Wade and Jude Woodside show us how. This issue also boasts our Annual Training and Education Supplement for youngsters looking for a trade career, see page 113 for that 16-page guide. We head to Whanganui, to the home and shed of ex–panel beater Ian Chamberlain,  a man of extraordinary talents. From restoring a 1906 REO, to building a 64-note organ and placing it on a vintage truck, to repairing and restoring the Waimarie paddle steamer and, much, much more — a true Sheddie is Ian. We learn how to be a Solar Buddy light builder and how to build a simple stylish desk made with minimal hand tools. Shaugn Briggs is a limestone carver from Christchurch who took a risk with his career to follow his passion; and we meet another artist, Gregor Kregar of West Auckland whose sculptures of metal, wood, lead-crystal glass and neon are created in a shed with all the tools every Sheddie could wish for. Michael Wolfe shows us his amazing model build of a Swiss train, an SBB RAe II, before Enrico Migliano shows us the basics of 3D printing, including some really useful tips. We have a step-by-step guide to the dying art of chrome plating and part two of Bob’s tips for the ideal metalworkers’ shed. As Christmas is just around the corner Mark Beckitt creates a unique LED light as a gift and Coen Smit shows us how to modify your trailer to ease hooking up to your vehicle on your own. Bob Browning makes a very useful addition to a drill press with his guide on how to build an aluminium fence, and Jim Hopkins closes this issue from his sickbed writing his Back O The Shed column. What a soldier!
