Join our community of makers

Machyne is a community-oriented makerspace with the classic tools and high-tech equipment you’ll need to bring your big ideas to life. Our members—from hobbyists to startup founders—are united by a passion for creativity, collaboration and camaraderie.

Become a Machynist

Our workshop will include extensive resources and a full suite of powerful, cutting-edge tools. From woodworking and metal fabrication to 3D printing and laser cutting, we will have the equipment and space you need to make virtually anything.

Machyne provides:


Private, secure “studios” for corporate teams, entrepreneurs, or anyone who needs a private workshop


Rentable worktables, lockers, and project space for hobbyists, product developers, and anyone else who needs a day, week, month (or more) to bring their project to life


Customized programming and events, including STEAM programs for students, team-building retreats for employees, hands-on experiences and innovation workshops

While we welcome all kinds of makers, we’re especially equipped to help those who want to turn their project into a viable entrepreneurial venture. We take pride in supporting members with the resources they need to get their businesses off the ground.
