  • Investment casting update
    • Still waiting on the torch to arrive as it's currently stuck in USPS hell.
  • Ceramics
    • Big updates! Mobile base for wheel made and 2 piece splash pan started (Just needs some bolds and wing nuts to hold it together)
    • Built kiln shelf storage
    • Feel free to contact Rebecca Pocai if you're interested in helping out and don't know what to help with


  • Inventory
    • Large parts of it complete
    • We will be updating the wiki in the process


  • Hive13 Craft Pillar Yarn Bomb Sheet!
    • Pamela Taylor has a google spreadsheet for those interested in contributing to the yarn bomb for the craft area pillar!
      • Feel free to contact her for more information.
  • Second bathroom Update
    • 2701SG plumbing contractor team is out of commission with the big C. Be patient and keep our current bathroom clean
  • Mailing List
    • While using Slack has made our mailing list see much less traffic - decisions are not made in Slack since it is so fast paced.
    • Need to make sure that new members are aware of it as votes and decision making takes place on the mailing list
  • Basswood available for use!
    • Per Brian Wingate: There is stack of 5/4 basswood in the dungeon I grabbed from an auction. According to the internet, bass is soft and good for carving and having a neutral grain (easy to match other finished woods). This is open to general hive use within reason. If you need more than ~1 board, I only ask you consider helping me out for ~$1 per board/foot (12”x12”x1”) {if interested, pm me and well forgive it out}. Mostly, it’ll be me being noisy and wanting to know what you’re planning. I’ll make a sign at some point, but It will be an “on your honor” system so have at it!
