“Great way to explore your interests. Ive wanted to try wood turning for a long time. Chimera has everything and classes to go with it. Woodworking, metalshop, jewelry, 3D printing and graphics.

You don’t need to buy expensive equipment, take a class and become a member and use the space anytime. Equipment and tools are here. Ariel Stone is a great teacher and I plan to go back.”
