It's MAKE SMTHNG week! Turn scrap into gifts - Free event

Join us to upcycle scrap lumber into a variety of simple but awesome gifts: wooden building blocks, tea light holders, serving boards, coasters—and anything else you can imagine. We’ll provide the tools, sandpaper, and finishing supplies—you bring the imagination and elbow grease. No skills? No worries, our shop techs will be on hand to assist. This is a family-friendly event where parents and kids can work as a team.

THIS EVENT IS FULL - JOIN THE WAIT LIST USING THE FORM BELOW.

MAKE SMTHNG Week is an international festival of events that encourages people to engage their creative skills, community spirit and the power of social experience. Instead of spending time holiday shopping, let’s come together and make something!

Let's make a...Tool Library!

What is a tool library?

A tool library is just like a normal library, but with tools instead of books. They lend household, yard, and specialty tools to members with the goal of promoting reuse, access, and shared knowledge.

Imagine being able to borrow tools instead of buying them. Who wants to own a tool you use once or twice? For less than the cost of renting or buying one tool from Home Depot you could have an annual membership to borrow hundreds of tools. It just makes sense.

Many communities across the US have launched tool libraries in the past decade. For once NYC is behind the times, but we can fix that. Come help us plan a tool library for Gowanus and the surrounding neighborhoods.

If you are passionate about DIY, community organizing, self-empowerment through skill-building and tools, please join us—RSVP below!
