We’re more than tripling our size, so lots of space for woodworking, metal working, roomy electronics area and great craft area (nice flooring! trim!). The address is 4444 Robertson Rd, near Stoughton Rd, between Milwaukee St and Cottage Grove Rd. Stay tuned for our first party, Open Shop … Continued

The first meetup of Madison’s Drone Racing League happened today at The Bodgery. Drones arrived in many forms, including one 250mm racer, and others hungry to jump in. We’ll meet twice a month at The Bodgery (Saturday afternoons), so check our calendar for details. We’ll have build days, trade advice and equipment faves, and many, many races. Come on by!

Luckily for us, lazing around on a sunny Saturday afternoon, the intrepid crew of the USS Bodgery is out there, clearing the galaxy of ships with poor shields and inferior weaponry. The crew is playing Artemis again, a 6-member team that cooperates to operate a starship together, zooming around space, taking on other teams, raiding supply depots and taunting random … Continued
Our class schedule is shaping up! Most every month, JT teaches Laser Cutting/Etching, Mike teaches about Welding or blacksmithing, and Karen is teaching how to use the Vinyl Cutter. Soldering 101 is coming again from Lumen Jewelry. We have monthly meetups on Microcontrollers (Arduinos/Rasp Pi’s) and Bookbinding. Lots to learn and do! This, in addition to our weekly Open Shop and … Continued
