Open house! April 14th 2011 EatFoodTalkShop

It's April, and with things finally warming up, let's get together for food and to talk shop!

Thankful that the rain has let up, the sun is out, and it is warm in Oakland! We're finishing up a fantastic resin-inlayed desk inspired by turn-of-the-century safe locks and a whole mess of fun trade booth elements for Clif Bar's kids line. We also have a handful of office interiors gearing up that look like they're gonna be a lot of fun. And our Maker Faire talk on the secrets of secret doors was accepted! So now we need to hear all your secret door stories and/or dreams.

What are you working on? We'd like to see and hear about it!

So please drop on by, we'd love to see you. Sadly, Jeffrey has been too busy to make beer, so while we'll have some it would be awesome if you could bring some too. We'll hang out. Eat some tasty snacks, and talk about the finer points of what we're all working on. Come join our community of designers, artists, big thinkers, and fabricators!

Kids welcome, but it is a shop and a party. Lots of sharp corners. And they might learn some interesting new words. You have been warned!

Hey there!

Rub your hands together and put your jacket on. It's time to warm your soul at Because We Can!
We'll be cooking up some hot cider (with a nip of something special if you're good), and making little BWC keep sakes.

Come see what we're making! We're not even sure exactly what it will be! But most likely, you'll get to take one home.

Bring some BBQ, snacks or drinks to share.

We still have some small prototype pieces for sale, and we have a ton of Trees from our store available for sale!
