We joined SnoCo Makerspace last week, and we've been in heavy planning mode ever since.
In case you don't know what they are, a makerspace is basically a gym for crafty stuff. Just like you join your local gym for their Nautilus equipment for you to use, we joined this because they have 3d printers, CNC machines, laser cutters, welding equipment, woodworking tools, and all manner of other useful stuff as well as a space setup to use them correctly and safely. The community part is going to be nice, too.
They are big on safety, and you're not allowed to use a kind of equipment until you've taken one of their classes on that particular stuff to prove you know what you're doing. I like that.
So I'm working with Claire to come up with some plans for a few things to start off with, and we're going to get to making!
