Minnesota Swag (Thursday, Sep 30th - HG )

(Cement mold making on the Big CNC )
    A joint project between a few of our Makerspace members, here we have prototype plug for cement casting being cut out on our 5’x8’ CNC router. After this prototype is cut it will be lined with a lubricant and filled with cement. The result will be a coffee coaster with a Minnesota state relief in the center.

DIY Furler (Thursday, Sep 30th - HG )

(Just had to spend a lil time on the metal lathe)
    Check out this metalshop project from a few weeks ago. Using the metal lathe, Garrett cut a new jib furler for his sailboat. If you've noticed a large van parked in front of the space that would be recently joined members, Min and Garret. While they have been here only briefly, they've made a big splash in the community. They are now headed south for warm weather and, while we are sad to see them go, we wish them the best of luck on their journeys!

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.
