How do I get a job here?
ADX in Portland is a makers’ dream. It’s a 12,000 square foot facility filled with tools, space to work, and other like-minded folks. There’s a wood shop, metal shop, factory floor, and design lab; all equipped for pretty much anything you can dream up. All you have to do is get a membership, much like you would at the gym. That membership gives you access to the space, help from the staff, and the chance to sign up for on site classes. And when you need to a break or a caffeine fix, head on over the the cafe for a pick me up.

One thought on “Where To Get Stuff Done: ADX”
I’m a member of “the Sawdust Shop” (http://www.sawdustshop.com)in the south SF bay area, and I’ve got to put in a plug for them. It’s woodworking only, but about half the price of ADX. They have an epilogue laser and a shopbot cnc router, as well as two Sawstop table saws. I’ve built 3 banjos and a 13′ rowing skiff there, as well as many smaller projects. Great staff too!
