1000 Garages

Need something cut on a CNC machine and don't have one in house? Check out 1000 Garages.
It could be a piece of furniture, a part for your new energy innovation, a cool art project, or an idea for emergency housing. It could be for a personal project, a remodeling idea, or an entrepreneurial initiative.

Inspired by Tom Brokaw's question to the presidential candidates, 100K garages is a community of workshops with digital fabrication tools for precisely cutting, machining, drilling, or sculpting the components of your project. We're here to help hook you, the "Maker", up with these workshops and the "Fabbers" that operate them.

It seems like a nice way to connect people who need things, and shops that are looking for additional work. I know there have been times when I have searched out fabrication services when I needed pieces made that I couldn't produce in house for one reason or another.
