The New Maslow Store, the Final Shipment, and Projects! September 5th Update

It’s been a hectic couple weeks at Maslow HQ while we facilitate the transition to having parts supplied by the community and get the last couple kits sent out. Hannah was out last week, and while I mostly held down the fort I’m really glad she’s back because things run so much smoother with us both here. Thanks for bearing with us while we get everything sorted out.

 

The New Maslow Store

Having the community offer Maslow parts and enhancement kits is great, but it can be confusing.

The Swap Meet channel in the forums works well for listing one time items for sale, but longer term items can get buried in the conversation. As a solution we’ve created the Market category in the Maslow Community Garden. It allows all of the Maslow related items currently for sale to be listed in one place. Just like every other project in the Community Garden, items listed for sale are GitHub repositories which can be edited by anyone.

You can explore the market at http://maslowcommunitygarden.org/?market=true or by clicking the “Store” button at www.MaslowCNC.com .

You can see a quick video on how to post something for sale in the Market here:


 

Shipping final kits

The hardware kits for the final shipment were finished today and should be delivered to us by the end of this week or early next. We’ve got the kits fully packed aside from the hardware so as soon as those hardware kits are delivered to us we’ll put them in the full kits, put a shipping label on, and the kits will be on their way. If you’re in the small group of people who are still waiting for a kit to ship, be on the lookout for an email with a tracking number early next week, and thanks again for your patience!

 

Projects

Every week there are more and more amazing projects. Don’t forget to scroll all the way through this week for a boat build which blew our minds.

But first it wouldn’t be newsletter if clintloggins didn’t build something cool. This week he continued his garage organization system with a skateboard holder.

TomD absolutely blew us all away this week with this rowing skiff / SUP build. Here is his CAD design

Based on the CAD model he cut out templates and then used a hot wire cutter to transfer the templates into foam

He also directly cut some marine grade plywood to make the boat’s rowing mechanism
