At MakerPlace a complete metal, wood and electronic shop, classroom and work areas await your projects.

Think of it as your dream shop… the one you’d build if you had a really big garage and a huge budget … a large number of expensive tools, many computer controlled, available for your unlimited use.

Multi-needle embroidery and industrial sewing machines are available for your construction of personalized gifts, shirts, caps, backpacks and comforters. 

A 3-D printer can create real durable plastic objects from just a drawing … almost like Star Trek. 

Large format, high powered lasers are available to cut shapes from wood, plastic or many metals or delicately engrave messages on wine glasses. 

A computer controlled vinyl cutter can make precise signs, decals or sand blasting masks. 

Welders, benders, brakes, shears, mills, an English wheel and a complete (legal) paint spray booth are ready to make or modify your motorcycle, bike, or ATV. 

The wood shop offers a planer, shaper, sanders, drill press, a large format 3 axis cnc router, numerous saws and a lathe all with integral sawdust management. 

If some of these tools are unfamiliar, MakerPlace offers basic to advanced courses to start you off or to hone an existing skill. Come learn something new, collaborate with experts, complete a prototype, start a business or fashion unique gifts.

Intro to Wood Shop Power Tools

Julia P.

Attended: Intro to Wood Shop Power Tools

So excited to take this course. Really enjoyed being introduced to MarkerPlace space and the tools they have available for use.

BOS - Intro to TIG Welding

Chuck E.

Attended: BOS - Intro to TIG Welding

The course was good however, we did not get to weld b/c the argon gas bottle was empty and there were no replacements. Jesse, the instructor, was super nice and offered me a private welding class for an hour (the part I missed). I recommend that MakersP make sure the necessary equipment is available prior to the start of a class. Chuck

Attended: Mold Making 101: Body Casting with Plaster & Alginate

This was my first time here. I had a great time touring the shop. Everyone was very friendly and open to talking about what they were working on. I learned new things about working with plaster and left with a cool hand mold and wax slip casting.

Ty was super knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Learned a lot in this class and ended up with a beautiful final product. Couldn’t have been a better experience with the space and the teacher. I’ve already recommended the class to a bunch of people and it hasn’t even been a full day since I’ve completed it.
