New and Improved Maker Monday



  • Thank you very much @Nicholas. I know you are very busy so any time you can volunteer is greatly appreciated.

    @megan.fenkhuber, is correct that a sweep would help in the short term, but that that door is nearing the end of its life span.

    From my experience the reject doors at Home Hardware are a better value than those at Windsor, but shopping around is always a good idea. The doors at home hardware are in a tarped up storage spot in the yard near where you go to pick up lumber and sheet goods.



  • To use the old door there is a 2x2 and a sweep that need to be installed. Remove the door, screw sweep and 2x2 in place, install door. I have not sourced a heater for the mudroom yet.

    @Vaughn Would the bookcase and its content in the lounge be better upstairs


  • Member

    @ColeVanD there was a large shelve donated to the space in the past week. It is currently sitting in the hallway by the stairs, waiting to be moved to the classroom. The bookshelf in the lounge is staying put, as far as i’m aware at least.


  • Design Lab

    @ColeVanD yep thats the plan - combine the two and make room in the lounge for something people actually use. Maybe an easy chair?


  • Design Lab

    @ColeVanD, yes! I can’t wait to get the shelves stocked up with awesome books in there, but I want to make sure that it doesn’t become a dumping grounds for unwanted waste paper (bound or unbound).

    Unfortunately I can’t make it in for Maker monday, but will be working on some makerspace stuff, and I hope some of it will be ready for the members meeting tomorrow. Thanks a lot to everyone that can, and does make it on a regular basis.

    Makerspace is looking good - some clean-up to do after Art in the Dark and odds and fods, but generally we are in good shape.

    I’ll be pinch-hitting Maker Monday and puttering around tonight. We can wing dinner - anyone who is into making a pot of gruel is welcome or I will figure something out. Gotta eat!

    List of to-do’s:

    • Tidy hackroom

    • Sweep mudroom

    • Build ‘fence’ in Fab Shop hall to contain materials (its been tidied up) @vaughn

    • Clean laser cabinet

    • Move books up to Classroom (book shelf now behind door)

    • Display shelf for @Ron_Ron 's hologram projetor?
