you can finally sink your teeth into the world of making.
You'll be joining a community of thinkers, makers, and builders with tons of experience. We are so proud to be able to offer training on all of our tools and equipment so that you can see your ideas come to life! We are big on mentorship, so expect to participate in training up the next generation of makers.
We're not shy when we say we have some fun toys, um, that is, tools. If you're interested in woodworking, metalworking, electronics, programming, robotics, 3D printing or anything, really, this is the space for you. Safety is paramount and every member is required to complete training on every tool they use.
Our memberships include 24 hour access and scheduled tool use. Reserve a tool, use it. We're all adults here, even the high-schoolers. We don't lock you in and we don't lock you out. Your membership is month to month. Need to take a break? Cool. Just let us know. (We have jobs and families too.)
