The MakerBarn

We're a friendly makerspace . Member driven, community focused. The MakerBarn is a non-profit makerspace located near The Woodlands, Tx.

A makerspace is similar to a fitness center, but instead of building muscles, the members of the makerspace build things, all kinds of things. Members have access to professional grade tools and machines. There is a woodworking shop with Table Saw, Band Saw, Planer, Jointer, Scroll Saw, Sanders, Wood Lathe, and assorted other hand and power tools. There is a Welding Shop, Machine Shop, and upstai

Have you ever wondered what you can do with a 12 ton hydraulic press? Member Jim and his brother Robert needed to push out a lathe spindle from its bearing in order to put on a new belt. Success!

Busy day at the Shop. Love to see people making interesting projects. We've got someone using their domino machine to help line up oak planks and another member making square holes with the mortising machine.

Eclipse watchers. George brought a telescope and is wearing a welding helmet for eye protection. Perfect day for viewing!

Joe Foster says: What was interesting was we had glasses, telescope, welding helmet, and the pin hole box so we could compare viewing methods.

You know those beautiful wood and resin pieces? There are a lot of steps involved in making them that way. Here's a member making plenty of "nesting" material.

We hosted a Fusion360 class and they're learning to make their own "toy bricks" -(think Lego). They did the design work and successfully 3D printed the first brick last night!

George made some nifty 3D prints recently. We really like the new Bambu P1Ps!

Spring break let us see several kids making things with their adults. It's great to see the next generation acquiring a love of making and gaining the confidence to do more!
