What we're about

Snohomish County makers seeking like-minded for shared skills, equipment, projects.

We are looking for new and used (skilled, ha-ha) makers to join us putting on workshops, social events, and sharing workshop time. We have interests in electronics, programming, robotics, microcontrollers, 3D printing, laser cutters (additive and subtractive technologies), arts, molding, casting, routing, and woodworking. We have a great space in South Everett a stones throw from Boeing with super easy access for drivers and bus riders alike. Join us at an open house and bring a friend!

*** Requesting to join our meetup group? Make sure you are obviously part of the local area (members of other area groups, a photo, OR something that says “hey I’m not a robot”... at a minimum be a little chatty in the join question. We get a lot of attempted spammers requesting a join and decline people from out of the area***

Our website is http://www.snocomakers.org and if you need some technical help or conversation join us at our facebook group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/10576893376 ...

We hope you will consider membership for access outside workshops! If you feel like you'd qualify for a scholarship membership please contact any board member or officer. We will put the tools in your hands and show you how to use them.

Weekly Maker Mingling

SnoCo Makerspace - Purple Room

Good news everybody! Snohomish County is now in phase three (3) and we can now start doing in person open houses again as long as we don't exceed 24 people in the building. Masks are required for those that are not fully vaccinated as well as social distancing. We look forward to seeing you.

Thursday night is "Open" time for all members in good standing come in and work, chat, and collaborate. It's usually mostly a social event but feel free to come in and work, just watch out for non-member tourist safety. Chas & Kelly host this weekly event, ask either for details.

Non-members, please feel free to come by for a tour, hang out, meet some fellow makers, and we will answer any questions you might have. Non-members are not allowed to operate or use any tools during this time; that includes both powered and non-powered. We require a basic safety course for all tool use, a signed waiver, and most importantly our insurance doesn't allow for it.

IMPORTANT: We can not guarantee we are open past 8PM, if it's a gloomy night and no one shows we will close early. Usually we are kicking people out at or after 9; but keep it in mind if you are arriving late.

PARKING: Parking fills up in the two spots we have in front of our suite. Before 5PM Park in the spots on the right before the building as you enter the driveway.

VISITORS: As you enter our suite please proceed upstairs. You must be escorted in the downstairs shop area.

You're a wizard Harry! Now you just need to make a wand. We will be learning the very basics of using a lathe to turn wands. No experience with woodworking needed. Each participant will make at least one wand during the class depending on time and you will be authorized to use the wood lathes at the space.

We will cover:
Safety
Preparing wood
Shaping (we will be using carbide tools as they are easier for the new turner)
Finishing

Vaccinated people only.

*Wands do not contain magic...it was inside you all along.

- How to export your designs for 3D printing or laser cutting

OnShape is a fast powerful browser based 3D design software. I have ran it succesfully on Windows,, Mac and Linux. Bring your laptop. If you don't have one,, let us know so we can provide one to borrow.
