A Woodworking Makerspace
Do you love woodworking, but don't have the space or the tools for your own workshop? Or have you always wanted to learn how to make really cool stuff with your own hands?
Dovetail Community Workshop is a makerspace for woodworkers coming to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our vision is for members to share space, tools, and expertise to create fabulous products, from decorative boxes to custom furniture. Nothing is more satisfying than saying, "I made that!"
Dovetail means "to come together." It also happens to be the name of the woodworking joint shown at right. We want to give our creative community a space to gather, to practice their craft, and to learn from each other.
We'll have classes and special project events to help you learn to navigate the machines and build your confidence in your skills. You'll be amazed at what you can do!
For a better understanding of what we're planning, take a look at some of the makerspaces and workshops already thriving around the U.S.:
- Community Woodshop - Los Angeles, Calif.
- Philly Woodworks - Philadelphia, Pa.
- Makeville - Brooklyn, N.Y.
- BuildMore Workshop - Dublin, Ohio
- Fort Houston - Nashville, Tenn.
- Maker Works - Ann Arbor, Mich.
