Join us for our first meeting of the new year. Lets talk about what classes we want to take and teach, what improvements we would like to see at the space, and what projects we are planning! The meeting is being held at Caffeine Corps, 5552 Old Shell Rd. This is just to the east of University of South Alabama – across the street from the post office.
Members, Guests, and Visitors are welcome!
Thank you for your understanding during our temporary closure, but we finally got the issue with our liability insurance provider corrected and the shop will be back open this coming week.
So make plans to come down to the space for a tour, demonstration or to get started on that project you’ve been itching to start!
Rick Green is hosting Arduino and Raspberry Pi labs Thursday evenings from 6-8PM. This is a great opportunity to learn about DIY electronics. Check out the Meetup event link below to RSVP and ask questions.
Arduino and Raspberry Pi Theme Night
Our woodworking guru, David L., will hold a jointer and planer demo after our monthly member meeting. He has some notes on picking stock to make the most of the demo:
Anyone who wants to practice with those machines after the demonstration would do well to bring some short lengths of 2 x 4. 24 inch long pieces would be good.
When selecting your stock, look for pieces with the fewest number of knots. Most home centers carry 2 x 4s in 2 or 3 slightly different pine species, kept in separate bins. Check all bins for the most knot free boards.
The meeting is Saturday April 29th 11am at Mobile Makerspace. Stick around for the demo!
Due to volunteer scheduling Mobile Makerspace will not have open house for April’s LoDa Artwalk. We are sorry and hope you can make it back for May’s open house. Don’t miss out on the other amazing events going on downtown – SouthSounds Music Fest, Flow Show, Engaging the Next Generation volunteer fair, in addition to LoDa Artwalk.
