  1. Greetings. I am David Cameron, Product Designer and “Mr. Fixit / Exhibit Specialist” at KidSenses… down the street from you. Occasionally I need fabrications there that are just to expensive to machine by hand, but don’t need a regular (monthly) expense… bein’ a non-profit and all. I would like to visit you sometime. Do you have regular business hours?

    • Hi David,

      I would love to speak with you. FabLab Rutherford has not had it’s grand opening yet but we have been hosting the Maker Camp until we finish all renovations and get equipment in. You are welcome to stop by. Hours now are generally 10 am to about 4 or 5. Depending if I have any campers. You can give me a call when ever you are ready to come up. 828-748-3155

      Joe Whiteside
