There is no makerspace in my area. Since we are fairly rural, lots of folks have what they need for work on the farm. But there are many retired people around who I am sure would still like to tinker and build. I do know a few people who have built pole barn shops since they live in condos and couldn’t part with their tools. I am curious as to how many forum members are considering using the Glowforge as a major push to starting a makerspace. I believe it would be a great community building enterprise.
I’ve read through Make’s series of articles on starting up makerspaces. I understand it’s not just a matter of putting a few tools together in a room.
