YuKonstruct wishes to thank Tom Bamford for the use his CNC Router

YuKonstruct has benefited greatly from volunteers and donations. Tom Bamford has been both a volunteer and donour. Tom, a founding member of YuKonstruct, is a local entrepreneur with mad maker-skills. For the benefit of all members, Tom loaned YuKonstruct his CNC router.

A CNC – ‘computer numerical control’ – router is a cutting machine that produces consistent and high-quality work. Unlike a jig router, the CNC router can produce a one-off as effectively as repeated identical production.

YuKonstruct just purchased its own CNC!

Thank you Tom for your generosity!

Member’s Project: Custom-built Bed

When I was asked to build a bed for a friend I was supper excited! But I didn’t have a place to build it or a good quality table saw. Then a light went on and I thought “Yukonstruct! I should go and check out the space.”

From the first tour I was hooked and the ideas for this bed started flowing.

With the huge table saw, a great chop saw, access to clamps, drills and all sorts of hand tools I didn’t have to bring any of my own tools. I knew I was going to be able to create a great bed with lots of storage underneath.

I started to design my bed with SketchUp after taking the Intro to 3D Modelling workshop at Yukonstruct. As I was playing around with the head and foot board design I was excited about the possibility of using the CNC machine.

Once I started cutting pieces and assembling it was all down hill. Everyone was so helpful and I had a great time talking about my project and other projects people were working on. It’s such a creative space and there is so much knowledge and experience to tap into.

I can’t wait to start building my next project!
