Learn and teach carpentry skills with us as we work together to get free of the capitalist trap and the governments that support it- make your politics personal by working with others. Check it out yo!

Do you want to get together- learn, and teach, carpentry in a non-hierarchical space? Work for somthin other than the capitalist system? Do projects aimed at building (A)nti-authoritarian community- and helpin the down trodden locally?
Then check this out! Are you interested in carpentry? Do ya Feel the need to personalize your politics? Then check this out! We're startin a capentry collective. We're gonna use dumpstered, recycled, and sustainably produced materials- to craft works that are beutiful, simple, and strong. We'll focus on using our work to empower folks to revolutionary self sufficiency- from the inside out. I've got a double car garage dedicated to this- a compound miter saw, a skill saw, a cordless drill- and some plans to build work tables/cabnets out of recylced wood and solid core doors.
Some thought's on projects:
It'd be great to do stuff like build structures for dignity village-
also a while back I heard that the emigrant workers that stand on a corners for work would like to find a space and build a workers hall or somthin. Maybee some labor folks would like ta help or somthin? I think we could start out building simple projects like planters and do donation/work trade for them. Any moneys we're donated could go to help us build a shop- we need to build a D.I.Y. community capable of removing itself from the capitalist system. Are you interested?

I'm kinda thinking we should meet next sunday the 30th at 1:30. This would give folks time to eat and enough daylight to get a somthin done. The space is located at 3735 SE Raymond St. four blocks south of holgate one block west of 39th
See ya soon!
