Whether members of the Katherine Men's Shed are working on their personal projects or stopping by for a tea and a chat, already the new space has become a refuge for some in the community.
Officially open for more than one month, the shed has welcomed new faces through the door and generous donations along the way.
Most recently, the owner of NT Technology, Kevin Grey, handed over a computer and printer.
The new equipment has saved the Men's Shed thousands, while also providing myriad opportunities to educate and expand.
Mr Grey, who knows first hand how effective Men's Sheds can be in communities, said the donation was a small way to give back.
"A few members of my family have been part of Men's Sheds around Australia, so I have seen the benefit," Mr Grey said.
"A lot of people don't have access to these things, I saw a need for a computer and a printer and we are very supportive of the community."
Despite the abundant generosity from people near and far over the past year as the shed has been established, more donations are needed.
"We are at the point where we have people coming in and discussing their lives, their displeasures and sharing their experiences while they work on their project," vice president of the Men's Shed, Bryan Walters said.
"It is about getting things off your chest while using your hands, because we know men are less likely than women to seek help if they're experiencing mental health issues.
"But we desperately need tools and raw material."
Not only does the shed keep men engaged through healthy chats and hands-on work, it aims to support the community through building projects.
"We have a number of projects we are really excited about getting off the ground," Mr Walters said.
"But at the moment we are short of hand tools, a table saw, a planer and materials."
"The projects that are made in the Men's Shed will benefit the community and fund future projects.
The joint fundraising effort by the Men's Shed committee and Rotary Katherine saw an impressive $35,000 raised to build the actual shed.
From a dilapidated structure built in 1993, by one of the current Men's Shed founders, the shed was re-erected to meet current 21st century building standards and opened by Administrator of the Northern Territory Vicki O'Halloran in March.
