About Rob Beattie
Rob Beattie remembers only too well his dad's shed (actually it was a garage, but it was a shed in spirit) and the many wonders that came out of it. From a fishing rod made of bamboo to a curious shoulder-high partition-cum-knick-knack holder, he learnt all the crafts that are essential for making the most of your shed. He is a journalist who writes about technology and music and has written for The Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, Observer and Easy PC. He lives in Brighton with a great shed at the bottom of the garden.
