Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire

In just a few days, I’ll be one of over 70 local makers and crafters attending the second annual Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire. One of the sponsors of this event, The Gorilla Glue Company, will have a large booth with demos, give-aways and products that are designed to help us all be better makers, fixers, etc.

I’ll be conducting demonstrations on how to make four projects, all with a decidedly beer-pub theme:

Beer-Connoisseur-Serving-TrayRosewood-KnifeEach will feature the use of one or several Gorilla Glue adhesives, and I’ll be giving away a few to some lucky attendees. Now while a free give-away is one good reason to attend, there are several other reasons why you should consider going. Now this is not your run-of-the-mill crafts faire, we are talking high tech robotics, 3-D printers, power tool races and yes, things made out of wood—a full spectrum of makers and their wares.

Here’s my list of 5 reasons why you should attend this weekend’s activities:

1. It’s held at the Cincinnati Museum Center, a classic piece of architecture from the art deco period of Cincinnati’s growth, and they need funding to keep it up and running.

2. It’s being supported by great local companies like The Gorilla Glue Company, P&G and The Manufactory, all of who make their own products here in Cincinnati.

3. It’s a chance to support all of the great local makers, crafters and all around geniuses who share a common passion for building and making things.

4. Have you ever seen a power tool race? Enough said.

5. It’s FREE!

Hope to see you there, and be sure to stop by the Gorilla Glue Booth.

This post is a part of a series of projects I’ve been contracted to develop for The Gorilla Glue Company that will be featured at the Cincinnati Mini-Maker’s Faire, September 13-14, 2014. Click here for more information on the event.
