Shop Space

The Mill is a new educational industrial arts/maker space in Minneapolis, Minnesota that celebrates the do-it-yourself culture and creative communities by providing members with access to tools, equipment and instruction. From woodworking to metalworking and electronics, members of the Mill will work on individual or collaborative projects in a well-stocked, industrial grade fabrication workshop. The Mill offers a unique solution to address the knowledge, space, storage and social constraints of building projects at home.

The Mill is community resource. Beyond its identity as workshop, the specific purpose of the Mill is to encourage technical, scientific and artistic skills through individual projects, social collaboration and education. The Mill is conceived as an infrastructure provider for technical-creative projects. We will also fulfill our role as a community resource by hosting classes in a number of areas including electronics, woodworking, digital fabrication, metal fabrication, artistic use of industrial equipment and any other skills that our members or guests are willing to share.

The mission of the Mill is to serve as an incubator of ideas; to foster a collaborative community where members utilize industrial arts concepts, cutting edge technology and time tested fabrication equipment to create innovative solutions to technical issues in fabrication and making. Through classes, group interaction, and an inclusive environment, the Mill is a space where innovation and creativity can be fostered for novice and expert alike.

North Country Woodshop – Woodshop Open to the Public.  The easiest way to describe North Country Woodshop would be this: It's a health club for woodworkers. But, instead of treadmills, we have table saws...instead of dumbbells, we have drill presses, lathes, joiners, sanders, and so on. If it belongs in a woodworking shop, North Country Woodshop has it. And the best part, all the tools are available to use with a simple membership to North Country Woodshop.

Have your own hand tools? Bring'em! Don't have your own hand tools? Rent ours. Our staff of veteran woodworkers will show you how to swing that hammer without hurting yourself...or others. If you need lumber for your project, but don't have time to pick it up yourself, give us a call and we will have it waiting for you when you get there. And when your project is done, we can deliver it for you as well.

North Country Woodshop offers a wide variety of classes for all levels of woodworking ability. We offer classes from beginner to advanced with a large variety of projects and techniques. Our classes are taught by our team of expert woodworkers as well as local and world renowned guest instructors. Contact info at North Country Woodshop.
