Thank you for shearing this with us. I think it is great what they have done. I never heard from it before. But it sounds really interesting. We don’t have something like this in The Netherlands I think. I am learning for woodworker. I love to make things out of wood. I think you can make amazing things out of wood. Things that are unique. Because if you want to make two of the same thing out of wood, it always looks different. Every pace of wood is different. Nothing is the same. I hope they make amazing thing there.
Thanks for sharing this information with us.
I do not fully understand what it is. Is it an education? Or is it a company? In the Netherlands we have a makerspace but that is different. You can rent a little place so you can have an affordable workshop. The fun of it is that you have a lot of different professionals in one warehouse. Together you can get more machines and more amazing solutions for problems. They are very progressive in the creative filed. They give workshops too. Thanks for sharing your blog about this place. It would be nice to see some things they made. Can I find it somewhere?
Nice to see how a building that was once completely bare and empty can be build up into a big workplace. It is also good to offer the opportunity to work here for several people. And not to mention the workload that you have, really great. What I still like to see is the things you actually make with those beautiful machines.
Thank you for sharing.
It is amazing that they made a wonderful workplace from a empty historic building. In The Netherlands we dont have a space like this. It would be nice if we get one. On our school we have a lab. That a space where we have a lasercutter and some 3d printers. If we get something like that in an building whats currently empty then it would be great.
Thanks for sharing this amazing blog and keep up the good work!
It looks really nice the MakerSpace NYC. I think you had a great time over there. I recognize the building from some movies. Last week I have seen the film Joker and the building also appeared there, so that’s than funny that the MakerSpace NYC sits in there.
In the Netherlands I sit on a school that looks similar with that. It only had no metal department, because it is only a wood and interior consultant school. But I like the fact that the city made a vocational school of it. These days, especially in here, it is important to have good qualified people for the work. So I fully support it.
Wow they've got a nice workspace there.
MakerSpace NYC really overdid themselves here, brand new machinery for metalworking and woodworking!
It's really nice that the city and MakerSpace NYC worked together to provide such a great working space to educate new makers and to train craftspeople. Here in the netherlands we've got dedicated schools for that with all the extra classes like english and maths, So it's nice to see MakerSpace NYC giving people the opportunity to learn woodworking and metalworking first-hand!
I think it is a nice initiative that they have created a workplace for beginning makers. because of this they can learn so much. It is also very appealing to me that it is such an old and historic building! You don't just expect that. We also have these spaces at school. Here we can use the cnc, laser cutter, 3D printer and much more. I also use this a lot because you can learn a lot and it stimulates your creativity. So I'm all for it! And hope that many more of these spaces can be opened in the future!
That's a very nice and well put together workspace. I like how they invested in the best machines they possibly good get. You are not always working with such nice machines when you are in class. On our school in the Netherlands we also have a lab were we can use a 3d printer or use a laser cutter. The rest of all the machines on our school ar woodworking machines and not metal working machines. But anyway, I like the setup a lot and I like how they use an old building to use is their home and school for new education. Keep up the good work, Jonathan.
Thanks for sharing this. I really like the concept of this makerspace. A building turned in to a place for everyone to work with the machines. We do not have that kind of workspace in the Netherlands that I know. It is a little different here. You have to hire a small workspace and you can use the machines together, you have to buy them together. But it’s not like anyone can go in there and use the machine after a test. But it made me wonder, what if you fail this test? Is there someone in the building available to teach you how to use the machine? Not everyone knows how this works. Anyway, its really interesting to see all these different workshops together under one roof. Wood and metal and many other materials and technics. Must be a great environment for creators.
I had heard about makerspace once before, but never as extensive as in NYC. Through the photos I can see what a beautiful workshop has been made in the building and I certainly want to come by someday, when I come to the states again.
Thanks for sharing and good luck in the future.
I do not know al lot over metal, but i like to learn more about it. The place looks beautiful an very big. I like to work there my self. Thank you for sharing this great story!
its so good to see that the building is in use again. it would be such a bummer if they never did something about it. i also think its good that they made it into a workplace, so people can really do their own things there. also because the building is so big there can be a lot of people in there and they can learn all sorts of things. there are a lot of nice machines in that building. i hope they get used a lot.
the place look really clean and really cool if there is any chance in this life i have before me to go to makerspace i will do all that i can to go to there but i am sad to say that i live in holland and this place is probebly out of reach for me
I like how you invested in the best machines only, compared to my school where we only have 3D printers and laser cutters.
and woodworking machines we don't have any metal working machines like that.
But i like what you have done with the place, also the workshops are a great idea you have the space for it so why not.
I hope it will be a succes.
And maybe visit the building in the future.
Thank you for sharing this and good luck.
The Maker Space NYC looks really nice. I think you can have an amazing time there. I really hope something like this also pops up in the Netherlands. It is really nice to share the same hobby with other people.
It is amazing that they use an old building to create something nice like this project. It is a huge place, I think your very lucky with it. On the photo’s it look really nice, I have never heard of it before but I like to visit this place sometime.
Keep going with your blogs I like it!
It looks like a very nice workspace to investigate and experiment with new technologies I would really like to visit someday and spend time working on a really cool project by using all kinds of techniques, I really like that you are using some of the best machines. I also think its very cool that you did al of this in a old and empty space, you guys basically gave the place a new purpose. Great job!
