Hangout with cool people and talk about locks and securityCurrently Being held in-person at Twin Cities Maker with limited capacity and online via zoom.
Open Locksport is an informal meetup to discuss locks, lock picking, and related aspects of physical security. We variously pick practice locks, help new folks learn to pick, make tools, look at cool locks someone brought in, or chat about lock and door hardware news. Anyone is welcome, from folks who've never paid attention to the chunks of brass their keys go into, to trading professionals and red team pentesters. Well behaved minors with very good fine motor skills and excellent patience and ability to focus are welcome with their guardians.
In-person capacity is limited to 6, so book tickets early. If however you find that you cannot attend, reach out to release your spots so others can have a chance. Proof of COVID19 vaccination will be required, along with adherance to all of TC Maker's COVID19 safety protocols.

Sign Up Here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/green-woodworking-carve-a-spoon-or-butter-spreader-spoon-club-tickets-438568569397 Green woodworking involves working with fresh wood that is still full of water, when it is easier to carve. Carving spoons or butter spreaders is the most popular use of this, but there are many things that can be made this way. For this class, as an introduction to green woodworking, I will show you how to safely use knives to carve a spoon or butter spreader (depending on the wood I have available) from a blank (wood that has been roughly shaped with an axe). All materials will be provided. You won't finish your utensil during the class, but you should learn enough to finish it later at home, if you want to. I'll also briefly show a cheap way to sharpen these knives.
Spoon club: during these classes, anyone else that already knows how to carve is welcome to come and work on their own projects, and when there is free time I'll be happy to help or answer any questions.
