The Constructorium Cleckheaton (for-profit business concern at present):
Do you want simply superb DIY masterpieces to feast your eyes on?
David and Janet will see you right.
So what are you waiting for?
To the Constructorium!
Here you will find high quality DIYer David and all his solid, well-built projects applying Freedom Of Form for indoors, outdoors and the doors themselves.
Janet, meanwhile, does the sanding and varnishing to get that spot-on spotless finish.
If you like them, be sure to tell him via our email contact form or comments box.
For starters, here’s the 4-person swing bench, built Summer 2012 in the Constructorium itself in Cleckheaton:
Bobby approves. In the background is ‘Dan & Ben’s Den’, a 2 storey summerhouse shed built by David in 1993 in South Elmsall.
The next work in progress is the Potting Shed.
More coming as soon as the photos can be taken, sent across the country and uploaded.
The Dorset Constructorium (non-monetary-profit hackerspace administrated by Vulpine Designs Unlimited):
Exploring, learning, doing and making
New things, old things, fixing and breaking
Not being afraid to void warranty
To open, to tweak, to improve quality
People with skills, people curious
People who with proprietary closed source are furious
For fun, for invention, for the first ever
For the community and the world whatever the weather
Dismantle, rebuild, design and use
Hackers and makers can win what consumers lose
So before you buy replacements from an emporium
You’ll remember what you learnt at the
If you’d rather build something for yourself or tinker with broken things to make them work, or tinker with working things to make them break or some other combination like that, you’ll want to get to your local Hackerspace http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Hackerspaces. I have noticed a massive hole in the map of Hackerspaces and so propose we build one in Bournemouth, Poole or Christchurch.

I am interested in starting a hackerspace in the Bournemouth, Poole or possibly Christchurch area called the Dorset Constructorium. I run a small business which can act as the umbrella and monetary administration of the space. I have some useful items, bits and pieces and half-planned projects to contribute, along with a wealth of hand and power tools to share and a mass of Scalextric track. I have plenty of ideas for cool projects and things we can do once the place is put together. What I don’t have is:
* Money (we will need a bit of investment followed by sensibly priced subs)
* People who are interested
* Space (a place in which to have our hackerspace – could we get an old industrial unit or shop basement or shop attic or somesuch?)
* Much time per week or month in which to work on this.
I therefore ask that those who are interested consider whether you or someone you know can bring any of the above into the recipe. With enough people, we should be able to fulfil the above requirements and successfully get a vibrant community hackerspace started.
