About this site:

Welcome passionate Makers,

Come right in and enjoy all the imaginative, creative projects. Makermasters is where you will learn about the fascinating people who are remaking the world one project at time. People creating everything, from DIY technology and electronics to life size rocket ships in their back yards. These are projects made in garages, workshops and sewing rooms from all over the world. We will show you the people who are making unique and often one-of-a-kind items just for the simple pleasures of creation. If you’re interested in model airplanes, robotics, CNC machines, laser cutting, woodworking, metalworking, drawing, web publishing, CAD, tinkering and playing jazz you will enjoy spending your time here.
