Getting Started at NextFab

I recently joined a local makerspace, NextFab, and have been busy taking various safety and training classes. I really like that each class uses a small project to get you familiar with the tools. Here’s what I’ve made so far.

In the wood safety class I made this shelf:

In the metal shop safety class I made this bottle opener:

This key chain is from the intro to laser cutting class:

I made this box while learning to use the table saw:

And here’s my first project that I planned out my self:

Miniature Easels

They are miniature easels for small paintings. The one on the far right is the one I had that I duplicated the others from using some square and round dowel rods. The tall one is for small but not as small paintings.

I’m having a lot of fun at NextFab and have a growing list of projects to make!
