A New Maker Space in Redding

Ray Maguire describes himself as a middle-aged nerd, a lover of technology and learning who was looking for the necessary equipment to finish building a 3D printer when he discovered OneShop—a new Maker Space—was opening in Redding.

“After using Tyler’s 3D printer, I realized some of my design was flawed,” says Maguire, who abandoned printer construction in favor of metal casting. “It was great hands-on experience. It taught me what I was doing wrong.”

Maguire is referring to Tyler Hendrickson, an architect specializing in building information modeling who also has a building background. Sort of an architect-by-day, maker-by-night, Hendrickson says OneShop lets him leverage his passions.

 Launched last October for DIYers like Maguire, Hendrickson created OneShop as a place where people can bring their ideas to reality. “We have furniture makers, engineers, hobbyists, craftspeople,” he says, “All of them have access to our software, equipment and physical space for each phase of the design process.”  

In November, Hendrickson and his staff exhibited at the inaugural Shasta County Mini-Maker Faire at the Redding Civic Auditorium, an event that drew 100 Makers and close to 3,000 attendees. 

Technology-influenced DIY communities, like OneShop, have been on the rise since the launch of MAKE Magazine in 2005, and are part of a growing Maker Movement, one that is producing innovation in multiple markets, including manufacturing, engineering and industrial design as maker ingenuity meets technological advance.

When Hendrickson started OneShop, he thought only architects, builders and engineers would be interested until he began talking to small businesses. “A couple of them came to us to prototype their projects,” he says, “which led us to the Shasta Economic Development Corporation and the Venture Hub.”

Soon, larger businesses were coming to OneShop for signage and Hendrickson’s design skills. Schools interested in having their students learn about digital fabrication followed. Even casual conversations led him to hobbyists interested in a local solution rather than costly repair or parts replacement by mail.

Matt Clark contacted Hendrickson after a buddy told him about OneShop. “We are in the middle of designing a whole new line of furniture,” says Clark, owner of Matt’s Woodworks. “I am able to take it to the next level with Tyler’s equipment, something no one else has available in the North State for immediate access.” 

Clark likes the hours (“I can even take my clients in and show them the build process,” he says) and access to Hendrickson if he requires design assistance. “I’m most excited about being able to collaborate with him,” says Clark. “I tell him what I want and he can make it happen. He’s an amazing guy.” 

Hendrickson has thoughtfully configured his shop space. “We have a member-only art studio, the first step in the design process,” he says. “Our members use the computers and software to digitize their designs before moving into reprographics and editing. Finally, makers use the equipment and wood shop to prototype their designs.” 

A lounge area/conference room invites makers into discussion about their projects and among the cool tools members will find are a new laser cutter that works with virtually anything—leather, glass, wood, and even chocolate. “You can cut it out to the precision of a single hair on your head,” says Hendrickson. (Not something one can find just anywhere.)

Members can also use the 3-axis and 5-axis routers to create 2D and 3D objects (“Not with the same precision as the laser cutter,” says Hendrickson, “but still respectable”). The routers cut through material ranging from wood and aluminum to wax and foam. 

Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computer Aided Design (CAD) and G-code (all required for 3D printing, which OneShop also makes available) allow makers to fully render their designs.  

Wood and metal workers can use water cutters, lathes and welding equipment, and the art studio boasts a variety of mediums. “We add tools and equipment as we have the demand,”
says Hendrickson.

Members ($100 per month) and non-members alike can take classes, some of which are taught by members in exchange for a membership discount. Youths between 14-18 can use all of the equipment while those 13 and under are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

For Maguire, the new proprietor of Mac’s Metal Casting, the Redding maker space represents more than a place to design and make molds for his castings. “Without OneShop,” he says, “I would not have opened my own business.”
