Let's face it, a private shed away from the house is a great way to escape the busy lives we lead for a couple of hours at the weekend and tinker away at some project or other that might never see the light of day.

Well, as true as that may be, there are some ways that you can improve your DIY skills and be more effective when it comes to creating something special that you actually want to use. Having the right tools for the job is of the utmost importance, and that's where Kennards Hire can help out.

Framing your situation

Some people still prefer to print their photos out and hang them around the family home.

While Instagram reports that there are more than 80 million photos uploaded each day to their app, some people still prefer to print them out and hang them around the family home.

A photo print by itself looks a little naked, though, so putting it in a nice wooden frame gives it a classy edge, as well as allowing you the opportunity to DIY.

All you need is the vision of what kind of frame you'll create for your snaps, a measuring tape for your wood, a nine-inch circular saw for the cutting process and a triangular sander to help with the smoothing process.

Applying a coat of varnish after the frame has been joined is also recommended for aesthetic appeal.

Table in the middle

Another simple and useful project to do in your shed is to create your very own coffee table.

For use in the lounge or television room, or even in a more formal entertaining area, a sturdy timber coffee table can stand the test of time in terms of style and durability. They can also be very functional when it comes to entertaining, which Australians can't get enough of. In fact, the Arc Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation reported that in 2009, Aussies spent more than $17 billion on entertainment alone.

Putting your very own creation at the heart of eating and drinking with friends is a simple way to showcase your talents in the shed. Even better, you'll use the same tools for a table as you would for the frames above, with the inclusion of a hammer and nails for strong joints.
