Hacksburg

Blacksburg's Workshop

Meeting Tonight

Hello everyone! We’re having a general meeting tonight at 7:30 PM at the space. As always, these meetings are free and open to the public at large, where you can get tours of the space and its equipment, ask questions about the space, see what business we conduct, and so forth. If you were curious about Hacksburg but didn’t know where to start, tonight’s the night to stop by!

Tonight, we’ll be discussing finances, grants, and purchasing some new equipment. Our wiki is down right now, so I don’t have an agenda for everyone. I’ll post here when it’s back up.

Update 2017-07-11 2:07 PM: The wiki is back up, and the agenda is here. Thanks for your patience!

Woodworking Class Reminder

Reminder, this Saturday, we’ll be having our intro woodworking class.

This class will cover wood shop safety and the use of common hand and power tools. Will include live demonstrations. No prior knowledge required, all experience levels welcome!

Hacksburg is a makerspace. Makerspaces, also known as hackerspaces, are community spaces with tools and people who love to create and tinker with everything from electronics, wood, metal, sewing to home brew! Come check out our community of makers.

The two projects are a tealight holder and a phone or tablet stand see examples here.
