What are your interests as a Maker?

I'm interested in having access to the tools and techniques needed to make whatever I imagine. I like designing protoype inventions, making knives and tools, building furniture for around the house, and fixing bicycles. I've become interested in microcontrollers, open-source software, and CNC because I'd like to be able to do some small run manufacturing, and these technologies would automate many repetitive tasks.

What resources do you want to see the most in a Maker/Build/Hacker space?

I'd like to see a lot of CNC tools, such as laser cutter, plasma cutter, mill, lathe, waterjet, and router. Creating these tools at the DIY/hobbyist level and price range should be a focus for our Makerspace. Training resources to teach people how to use all of this equipment safely and enjoyably should be another focus for the group.


The idea of a Makerspace really interests me- a local place where people have low cost access to the tools and skills to make pretty much whatever they imagine. I live in Ventura and want this here, so I'm doing all I can to assist in making it so.
