Green woodworking involves working with fresh wood that is still full of water, which makes it easier to carve. Carving spoons is the most popular use of this, but there are many things that can be made. For this class we will learn how to safely use a sloyd knife (a straight knife commonly used for this) to start to carve a butter spreader as an introduction to green woodworking. All materials will be provided.
Hangout with cool people and talk about locks and securityCurrently Being held in-person at Twin Cities Maker with limited capacity and online via zoom.
Open Locksport is an informal meetup to discuss locks, lock picking, and related aspects of physical security. We variously pick practice locks, help new folks learn to pick, make tools, look at cool locks someone brought in, or chat about lock and door hardware news. Anyone is welcome, from folks who've never paid attention to the chunks of brass their keys go into, to trading professionals and red team pentesters. Well behaved minors with very good fine motor skills and excellent patience and ability to focus are welcome with their guardians.
