Makercise - Exercise Your Inner Maker



Makercise is all about exercising your inner maker. I am very thankful for everyone who has signed up for Makercise emails, subscribed on YouTube, followed on Twitter or Instagram, or liked on Facebook. The feedback I have gotten from the community has helped me build projects more efficiently and with higher quality. This community regularly encourages me on projects the effort I put into creating video. I want to align my focus with the interests of the Makercise audience. My passion project is building the Gingery machine tool series. The Gingery series is a classic maker and home machine shop text. I believe the community needs to have a high quality video series as an accompaniment to that text. This campaign is designed to fulfill that need. You are a partner if you have enjoyed, shared, commented, or liked Makercise content. Please take the next step and become a Makercise patron.

As a patron, you get to help deliver content the community does not currently have: shaper, mill, drill press, and accessories. You also get access to extended cuts--these are rough cuts that will be available only on patreon. They may preceed YouTube video postings by a significant time frame. This campaign is also intended to help me understand better what you want to see from Makercise.

I also make other videos in the realms of woodworking, electronics, and will eventually get into CNC routing, plasma cutting, laser cutting, and 3D printing. I love working on projects in the shop especially in support of building machine tools, and I love to share those projects through video.
