The New Space is Almost Complete

We’ve made tons of progress over the past couple months.

And I’m happy to say that, thanks to the hard work and dedication of our members, we now have a viable new hackerspace to build and learn in.


Of course, we’re not entirely done (will we ever be?). Our to-do list still includes building custom workbenches to put inside our lab, setting up the shop area for larger tools, and tying up various loose ends after the move. But our accomplishments thus far are worth celebrating, and we’d like break in the new CGW with a little get-together. So we’re inviting anyone who has ever been interested in CGW to a Hackerspace Warming Party on the evening of February 21st.

Come out to see everything that Gadget Works has to offer. There will be socializing, food, and random acts of hacking along with demonstrations of 3D printing and lifecasting.

We’re on the Move!

Columbia Gadget Works is proud to announce that we’re moving spaces! By the end of the month, we will have all of our belongings over in our new shop at 1404 Grand Ave.

The building has been divided up into sections, and CGW has our very own office and shop space. The office space is still coming together and our members are still working on getting the finishing touches taken care of, but we’re all very excited and looking forward to seeing what we’ll all be able to build here.

With Thanksgiving next week, we won’t be having our regularly scheduled Open Hack Night again until Thursday, December 3rd, where we will be meeting at our new space! Come on out at 7pm.


Here’s a shot of a couple members working on the walls for our new space.
