New Fancy Router Table (Friday, Jan 13th - Joe )

(Picture of table nearly finished.)
    Very nice router table has been added to the DMS Woodshop! 3.5hp Porter Cable, plus a high-end Jessem Lift, and a huge array of 1/2" shank bits make this a great new asset for the space.

Wood CNC Rotary Axis Built (Thursday, Jan 12th - Joe )

(three examples milled out of simple 4x4 construction lumber.)
    We put a Rotary Axis together for the Big CNC. It spins the wood rather than moving along the Y axis. Text and helical designs and more are simple and elegantly accomplished! Max workpiece is ~7' x 7" diameter. Talk to Joe to get trained in on the attachment.

End Of Year DMS Potluck! (Wednesday, Jan 11th - Joe )

(What a great group of folks!)
    Very End of December We had a lot of fun and good turn out for an end of year DMS potluck. As with any good potluck everyone got a fun taste of too much food and some time to hang out with great people. It may need to become ritual. Thanks everyone!

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Q: What is a MakerSpace?
    A: A Cooperative Workshop, run like a fitness gym, where a monthly membership pays for shared access to tech tools, electronics, woodshop, metalshop, techshop, crafts, classrooms, fabrics, etc! Similar places have been sprouting up across the country. They are a real community asset driving innovation, education and cooperation. Our biggest asset is the other members.

    Q: Who is running this?
    A: A loose knit group of about 30 very enthusiastic member-volunteers who aspire to endlessly improve and creatively use our 11,000sqft building. Over half of the equipment is on loan or donated from members! The remainder is currently privately funded to keep us well stocked.

    Q: How long have you been running?
    A: We bought the building end of 2014, and volunteers have been tirelessly working on improving the space since then. We had our grand opening September 17th, 2016.

    Q: Who is the place for?
    A: All ages (18+ for non-class-based access), Women and Men, Anyone who is curious, who wants to learn new things from enthusiastic people. Anyone who is artistic or otherwise creatively inclined. Anyone who likes to create things but may not have room at home for all the various tools needed.
