Hello all, I’d like to introduce myself, my name is Eric Schimelpfenig and I’ve been working with the folks over at SketchUp on some of our Maker Faire projects. Our latest project is this: The Open Maker Bench Challenge. We want you to hack our workbench! Read on!
Sometimes the best tools for the job are the ones you make yourself. So we thought that while every great making project starts with a great idea, it eventually ends up on a bench of some sort. Rather than just go buy a bench, we decided to design our own… two actually.
This bench is for every kind of maker. We want you to hack this bench and make it your own. We’ll take the best ideas and show them off at Maker Faire in May. You can submit your SketchUp models, ideas, or hand sketches here.
