A long time ago I saw a funny logo about bike riding in San Fran and, given the rustic state of our own city's road infrastructure, it inspired me to rework the logo for New Haven. I've always been fond of the New Haven Railroad logo designed by Herbert Matter and used that as the basis of the design. I then merged in a human figure ala Saul Bass (Hitchcock's "Vertigo" logo) and a touch of Milton Glasier's "I Love New York" logo.
Open House Every Tuesday
Between 7pm and 9pm we open our doors to anyone
who want to learn about the tools and projects at MakeHaven.
We are located at 266 State Street, New Haven CT
MakeHaven is for
The prefect place to create and get feedback on your early prototype or just engage with a community of people working on the frontiers of technology.
Connect connect with others who share your passion. Share the skills you have developed expand your horizons.
Experiment with new medium and challenge your ideas to create something unique.
The tools to make anything!
MakeHaven is a full makerspace and Fab Lab.
Multiple Fused deposition modeling printers which lay down plastic layer by layer to build your designs.
CNC Wood Mill
A large platform which an attached router which can be controlled by a computer to cut out intricate custom designs.
Several systems for harnessing the power of a CO2 laser to cut into or engrave wood. These can be used to make incredibly precise works of art.
Full workshop with all the equipment needed for most personal projects including: table saw, band-saw planer and hand tools.
A place to work on electronics platforms like Beaglebone, Raspberry Pi or Arduino. Or to solder a basic circuit board together.
The basic equipment for standard home brewing as well as a custom built computer controlled home brewing machine for the advanced home brewer.
A three axis fully enclosed metal mill, capable of cutting aluminum or steal with precision.
Sewing and Craft
Sewing machines, crafting equipment and a computer controlled embroidery machine.
Machine that heats and allows you to form plastic sheets into specific shapes. Great for making costumes, molds or a housing for your drone.

So on July 4th I did an epic barbecue involving dry rubbed, apple smoked pulled pork served on Hawaiian Malasadas (Portuguese deep fried donuts) with fresh cabbage slaw and mango/jalapeno sauce...but that’s not what this blog entry is about. A byproduct of that effort was me not wanting to waste the half inch of fatback (skin and fat layer) that I cut off of the two pork shoulders.
MakeHaven member Robby Blum will demonstrate some basic principles about the use of the oscilloscope. This a fairly informal demonstration is idea for anyone who knows a little about the oscilloscope but has not used the one at MakeHaven. Anyone with general curiosity about how an oscilloscope is used is also welcome to attend.
Free. During Open House. No RSVP required.
Arduino Prototyping For Beginners
Sunday, March 5th, 2017
Max enrollment: 6 This class is $10 for General Public and $0.01 for MakeHaven Members, MH Members will be reimbursed the penny.
If you're brand-new to Arduino and electronics, this class will get you started prototyping your first circuit. We will use an Arduino UNO to make LEDs flash in fancy patterns at the push of a button.
We will cover:
RESCHEDULED DUE TO SNOW TO THURSDAY 16th
Michael Zieff has worked with leather for many years as an artist. Since joining MakeHaven he has incorporated laser burning designs and cutting leather patterns with the laser cutter. He will demonstrate techniques he has learned and walk through the process of producing a decorative leather patch and sewing it to clothing. Members may participate in producing their own designs as space allows.
Sunday Maker's Social is an informal monthly event for MakeHaven members to gather and work on projects.
Members are encouraged to come in and share what they are working on, socialize with each other and give short demonstrations on techniques or building processes.
If you would like to lead a short, demonstration, contact Tambira by SLACK or email email@example.com for scheduling.
This is an informal maker's social.
