Adam Savage Celebrates the National Week of Making!

To celebrate the upcoming National Week of Making, Adam talks about the love of making, in all its forms, and the wonderful photos of work spaces that makers from the community have been sending us. Keep on sending those pictures and sharing your stories about the things you can’t help but create!

  1. Great video. Do I see our next poster in the background? Looks to be related to Adam’s cosplay love and being “incognito”.

    I need send you a pic of my workspace.

  2. Can we get a hashtag going for people tweeting their shop pics? I’d love to browse them a bit easier besides what Tested had reposted in the gallery.

    #mymakespace or something?

  3. I didn’t send a pic in because of the nature of what I make. I love what I do and so do my customers, but any time I post about it on say, reddit, people just make fun of it due to the subject matter.

  4. I just checked out your work, very well done! FWIW I don’t think the Tested audience would give you a hard time about it, this isn’t Reddit 🙂

  5. My toolboard in my garage shop. I’m mostly an amateur telescope maker (stardazed.com), but I also do furniture and sculptural projects. The toolboard holds my most frequently used hand tools, those I need about 95% of the time I reach for an implement. The rest are in a roll-away chest next to the board.

  6. I have to agree that there is something very enjoyable about seeing and visiting other shops. Not only it nice to see how others design and work in their space, it gives me a kick in my butt to get back into my shop. Since I started watching Tested videos, I have been reinvigorated to spend more time in my shop improving the layout and building more. Thank you for the inspiration to get back into my shop!

  7. This is the shot of part of our studio that makes us look all organized and neat and stuff. There are other possible shots that might say other things. http://davidmbowman.com

    If you guys are at American Steel anytime, and interested in what we do, let us know and come on by. I was hoping to see the Tested crew on your way to visit the Megabot, but it just moved out from the end of our bay.

  8. Hi Adam, a quick and specific question! What is the best way to glue acrylic? any tips and best practices?

    Thanks!
