    MakerPlace is pleased to offer a limited, unique opportunity to build a beautiful, high-end acoustic guitar. Guitar craftsman Michael Britt has structured a course for beginners and advanced makers alike. Michael studied Lutherie at Lagan Lutherie School in Northern Ireland and is now bringing his expertise to MakerPlace. Progress at your own pace, using specialized jigs, with frequent 1-on-1 sessions with a personal mentor. Classes will start on Saturday, May 26th. With some prior woodworking experience, we estimate your first guitar can be constructed in approximately 20 sessions... faster with more sessions with the instructor and some "homework". Sessions may be scheduled as your time allows, but more and frequent sessions speed up the learning and crafting process. 


    To assist students with scheduling class time and to keep classes very small (2) delivering specialized attention, we have four separate sessions throughout the week:

    Tuesday evenings 5-9

    Thursday evenings 5-9

    Saturday mornings 9-1 or afternoon 1-5 


    To assist students with scheduling "homework", each session with the instructor includes a week long MakerPlace craft room membership, and a locker to store partial results and specialized tools.

    Over the course of the crafting sessions, the following topics will be addressed in approximately this order depending upon student's needs ...

    •Wood selection • Preparing and bracing the top and back • cutting sound hole and making rosette • Bending sides & installing kerfing / blocks • Attaching top and back to the sides • Installing bindings and purflings • Dovetails • Neck construction • shaping neck • installing truss rod • cutting fretboard slots • gluing fretboard to neck • make your own jig for the shape of your headstock & drill holes in headstock • Fitting the neck joint • Finishing process  • sanding • sanding • little more sanding • designing and fabricating bridge • Set up...

    A $350 materials fee covers all the parts, tools and instructions for the workshop.

    This course can be paid in full up front, or in four installments at a rate of $625 (or $688 for non-members) per installment. Please register and email or contact us if you would like to set-up the installment option. 

    This course is open to beginners and advanced woodworkers.  Beginners may wish to take the Introduction to woodworking course first.

    We’re sure by now you’ve heard about all the fabulous CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) equipment at MakerPlace. The concept behind these machines is simple; create a design on your computer and the machine will cut out the design for you. Not sure where to start? We’ve set up a series of classes to help you turn your concept into a reality. 

    The VCarve: CNC Software and Fundamentals class will outline the workflow of taking your vector designs through the VCarve software which will generate the g-code used by the CNC machine to cut our your design. Students will also learn the functions of different tool-paths, cutting parameters, proper tool selection, and machining strategies. This course is a prerequisite for the BOS CNC Router and the BOS Tormach CNC Mill class. 

    Suggested Prerequisites:

    The first thing you’ll need to know before taking this class is how to create a .DXF file. If you have no idea what a .DXF file is or how to go about creating one we would highly suggest taking the Intro to 2D Vector Graphics class first. 

    Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete any necessary paperwork. Our shop can be a little tricky to find so we suggest giving yourself extra time for traffic and parking.

    Description:


    Over the course of two days, the student will build an "Antikea" Danish modern style coffee table from start to finish.  Retail value $600!


    The purpose of the course is to teach the fundamentals of
    furniture making from wood selection and characteristics through the Danish oil finish. The course provides accelerated training in modern woodworking, by focusing on the thought processes used by all experienced furniture makers through a combination of short lectures on
    conceptual thinking, followed by instruction in specific techniques as the class goes through the steps of building the coffee table. After the course the student can build finely made and finished furniture using the transferable skills needed to move to more complex pieces with confidence.  Students will learn the concepts of self-reliance, self-teaching, and “thinking like a woodworker.” 


    The students will learn most of the typical techniques and tool usage of the modern woodshop and how to apply them as desired for different applications. Tools used will
    include the table saw, cutoff/miter saw, band saw, table router, horizontal belt sander and hand sander. While not necessary for this project (because we will be using factory planed wood), some instruction will be given on jointer and planer use and order of operations. Basic gluing
    and clamping techniques will be augmented with some lessons about the “art of creative clamping.”


    Days and Hours:

    The course will run from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm Saturday and Sunday, July 21st and 22nd 2018. The plan is to complete the unfinished table during those hours. However, students may stay and work until the close of the shop both days to complete unfinished steps and apply Danish Oil finish to the final product. Students may finish incomplete tables anytime with Mr. Walkey’s free help if needed, when he is there.


    The "Antikea" Danish Modern Style Coffee Table:
    Below are photos of several versions of the table, which vary in wood choice, accents, length, width, and proportions. Within limitations the students’ tables may be individualized. The basic table we build will be made from African mahogany and wenge. African Mahogany is a lovely
    wood that is easily worked, reducing cutting, joining, shaping, and sanding time and effort to a minimum, to allow the class to focus on and learn the skills, techniques and thinking required. Students may buy their own wood with a commensurate reduction in workshop price.


    Students must register with MakerPlace in advance. Fees must be paid at the time of registration. The minimum number of students per workshop is three; the maximum
    number of students is four. Students will elect at the time of registration to either build their table from African mahogany and wenge, or elect to purchase woods of their own choosing. Students choosing to buy their own wood may consult with Mr.Walkey about wood selection and purchase by email after registering. Mr. Walkey will supply
    tape measures, squares, pencils, glue, sanding supplies, and Danish oil/ satin wax for the finish.


    The cost of the workshop with wood is $425.00. The cost of the workshop without wood is $375.00.


    Students are encouraged to bring note taking materials and cameras to photograph the processes and their project as it proceeds. Students may cancel with a full refund at any time, provided it leaves three students for the workshop. A nominal charge of $100 will apply to last minute cancelation of three-student classes.


    Required Prerequisites:

    Some woodworking or power tool experience is required unless Mr. Walkey waives this requirement for good reason.

    Description:
    In this 2-session workshop, you’ll configure and build your own skateboard deck! On Day 1, you will
    select your shape from a variety of premade templates and molds. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of
    different shapes, so no skateboarding experience is necessary! Once you’ve decided on your shape,
    you’ll glue and vacuum form 7 maple veneers using the Roarockit method of skateboard fabrication.
    The glue will dry overnight, and on Day 2, you’ll trace your template and cut out your shape, drill your
    holes, and sand your deck smooth. Instructions for clearcoating, applying art, and assembling the
    skateboard will be provided on Day 2, so you can take your time to put on your custom finishing touches
    at home. Participants will leave the workshop with their own handmade skateboard deck. (Other
    skateboard components like wheels, trucks, etc., are not included in this workshop.)
    Note 1: The veneers we use are roughly 9.5” x 34”, so your board will be smaller than that; however, we
    can provide larger veneers upon request for an additional fee. Please contact the instructor if
    interested, and we’ll get you set up with your dream board.
    Note 2: We have a variety of molds to choose from – if you would like to know the options and use a
    specific shape, please contact the instructor to reserve a mold. Otherwise, participants will choose
    their mold based on the order in which they registered.
    Early registrants will have first choice from
    molds that have not been reserved on the day of the class.

    Participants of this class will be introduced to the multimeter and trained on how to use this electrical instrument to measure voltage, resistance, amperage and continuity. Participants will then learn resistor color codes, and use that knowledge to design and wire LEDs and electronics onto a breadboard and troubleshoot their designs until they work as calculated. The student will then calculate the battery energy needed to run their electronic project.

    The class a single module, organized as an interactive slide deck presentation, with a hands-on component and examples performed by the students. 

    Entry-level makers, costumers, hobbyists, technician and experienced engineers will find this class useful. Students jump right in and build a circuit using resistors and LEDs, then use the multimeter to probe and measure their circuit. The students then apply their knowledge by building a custom battery-powered LED electronic circuit. These concepts apply to off-grid builders, or costumers designing technology into their art.
     

    Prerequisites: No previous electronics experience is required. An understanding of algebra is helpful.

    This is an introductory course on the basics of creating jewelry using precious metal clay techniques. Metal clay can be easily manipulated by hand just like familiar ceramic clay. However, when fired, the metal clay binding material vaporizes and the metal particulates sinter leaving a solid metal object.

     Metal clay objects may be easily formed by hand, created with commercially available press molds, 3D printed, or provided by the student. Thus, no previous art experience or talent is required to construct beautiful jewelry or other objects with precious metal clay. 

    Although the skills taught in this course are generally appropriate to all metal clay, this class with focus on low cost bronze metal clay while skills are developing. The instructor will supply approximately 30 grams of bronze metal clay. Typically this is enough for a pair of earrings and two medium sized pendants. See photograph for objects created from approximately 30 grams of material. Students will learn skills that may be applied to working with other metal clay such as copper, silver or gold metal clay. 

    Due to the relatively lengthy firing time required, this course is divided into two sessions: in the first, the student will develop their clay objects which will then be fired. In the second session, students will finish their fired objects by polishing and/or applying patinas or dyes, and/or jewelry findings.

    This course will be held in two 3 hour sessions on consecutive weekends: Sunday June 10 and Saturday June 16    

    A materials fee of $25 covers all materials needed for the class including each student's bronze metal clay, jewelry findings and finishing materials.

    **Closed-toe shoes are required**

    In this four-session course, students will learn about various knife designs, the reasoning behind certain knife shapes, as well as how to design your own knife, and bring it to life via the traditional Stock Removal Method.  The vast majority of knives on the market today are produced using stock removal because it is a great way to produce a blade that is both attractive and reliable.

    The first session will begin with a brief lecture and then students will get right into working in the shop for the remainder of the first session and the entirety of the second session and third session. During shop time, you will gain experience using the bandsaw, belt-grinder, and forge.  After learning the basics, students will have the opportunity to  imagine their own design, bring their blade to life in the forge, and finalize their masterpiece using the rest of the metal machinery. 

    The instructor for this course is not only experienced in knife making, but also boasts a wealth of experience gathered from years of working as a U.S. Navy SEABEE, as well as a background in basic survival and wilderness first-responder training. This is a special opportunity to make a truly unique product or gift. 

    A $50 materials fee covers each student’s metal and wood consumables.

    Have you ever wanted to cut out your own coasters, etch custom designs on glassware, or just make really awesome gifts? MakerPlace's Intro to Laser course will guide students through the care and use of the 80 and 100 watt lasers as well as the proper steps for prepping your file, material selection, and navigation of the LaserCut software. With our Hurricane Lasers, members have the ability to cut anything from acrylic to wood and achieve detailed engraving on materials like leather and anodized aluminum.


    The first portion of this class will be lecture based. After the lecture, students will each have the opportunity to calibrate the machine and run a test file. There will also be an opportunity for Q & A during this time. 

    Suggested Prerequisites:

    The first thing you’ll need to know before taking this class is how to create a vector-based file (eg: .ai, .eps, .dxf, .dwg, .cdr .plt file extensions) If you have no idea what a vector file is or how to go about creating one we would highly suggest taking the CorelDraw: Intro to 2D Vector Graphics class first. 

    Equipment Rundown: 

    • (2x) 100 watt CO2 Hurricane Lasers 35in x 47in in bed size
    • (1x) 80 watt CO2 Hurricane Laser 23in x 31in in bed size
    • File types imported into laser .plt .dxf .bmp
    • What they can't cut: metal, vinyl, PVC, and any poly-carbonate plastics

    During the two day course students will make an urban lumber live edge slab table or bench from a selection of lumber we have available from local nonprofit mill called Lumber Cycle. They are based in Ramona, CA and work with arborists, property owners and county officials to harvest downed and dying trees, milling them into affordable live edge slabs for local artisans to create beautiful furniture from. Typical species include Torrey Pine, Coastal Live Oak, Eucalyptus, Redwood, Cedar, Ash, California Pepper and many more. The slabs are selected on a first come basis based on sign up order but it may be possible to get specific species If it’s been prearranged with the instructor and it’s available.

    Days and Hours:

    The course will run from 10am until 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Students must register with Maker Place in advance. Fees must be paid at the time of registration. The minimum number of students per workshop is three; the maximum number of students is five. Students will elect at the time of registration to build either a table or bench. Instructor will supply tape measures, squares, pencils, glue, sanding supplies, and finish etc.

                The cost of the class without wood is $400 for members and $420 for non-members to be paid to Maker Place directly. The urban slab prices vary depending on the size/ thickness and variety of wood but total class price including hair pin legs will be in the $500-600 range typically. The selection of lumber varies so you will have to check with the instructor prior to class for lumber payment details.

                The plan is to complete the finished project during those hours. However, students may stay and work until the close of the shop both days to complete unfinished steps if any and apply wipe-on poly finish to the final product. Students will begin by selecting the slabs for their table/bench and we will go through the process of cross cutting the slabs to length using a circular saw and fence. Then we will proceed to the CNC machine where students will learn how to secure and shim the slabs to ensure a level/ flat surface. I will demonstrate the leveling of the slabs using a surfacing bit. Students are encouraged to take the wood CNC class offered (at Maker Place) but if they have not the instructor (MG) will assist in the operation of the machine. Next we will remove the bark and outer layers from the live edge to reveal the natural beauty underneath. We will use (a) variety of sanding attachments to smooth and polish the surface without destroying its organic features.

                At this point we will assess the overall integrity and stability of the slabs. There will most likely be some cracks or defects which we will either putty/ wood glue or epoxy depending on the severity of the cracks. After we will sand the  flat surfaces of the slabs using orbital sanders and 80 through 220 grit sandpapers as well as the live edges of the slabs using 320 grit and steel wool. After the final 320 hand sanding they will be ready for finishing.

                The easiest and most forgiving finish for beginners is wipe-on polyurethane because it doesn’t require any spray experience. We’ll clean the slabs with denatured alcohol to remove any final dust and then apply the wipe on the poly allowing it to penetrate before wiping up the excess. This process will take several coats allowing it to dry between each one. So depending on their time allowance students can either stay after class to finish their coatings or can complete the finish at home on their own time. I will provide satin wipe-on polyurethane and rags for students who stay but if you want to do it at home or prefer a different sheen you will need to provide it yourself. The final step in the project will be to attach the hairpin legs students have pre-selected from several off the shelf options (16”/18” and black or steel finish) which simply need to be screwed too the underside of the table/bench.

                Students are encouraged to bring note taking materials and cameras to photograph the processes and their projects as it proceeds. Students may cancel with a full refund at any time, provided it leaves three students for the workshop. A nominal charge of $100 will apply to last minute cancelation of three-student classes.

    Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete any necessary paperwork. Our shop can be a little tricky to find so we suggest giving yourself extra time for traffic and parking.
