Workbenches for the basement

On Sunday, the 27th, @ 10am we will be constructing some benches for the donated tools we have accumulated as well as for work surfaces.  Tomorrow night I will be measuring and plotting the basement space to try to come up with a reasonable layout.  Any input is welcome in this regard. 


On Sunday we will start by picking up the materials at HD and will work until it ain't fun no more. 


This will be a great opportunity for those members who would like to brush up on basic wood working skills to come down and learn while you help out.   

Item Donation Inquiry

At MakeHaven we love cool old equipment but we also attract lots of it.  We want to know about the stuff you have and might be willing to donate but we can't accept it all because of space and storage limitations. If you have something you think we might be able to use please let us know about it! If there comes a time when we might be able to use it we will have someone get in touch. 

Particularly useful would be:

  • Artistic consumables (useable paints, for example)
  • A functioning EZ up/popup tent
