Issue 20 — HackSpace magazine is here!

Maker perfection is a journey not a destination. We’re all permanent students, and there’s always more to learn, so we’ve pulled together 50 of our top maker tips in this issue to help you be a better maker. Whether you’re a programmer who dabbles in metalwork, a crafter who likes to add electronics to builds or a woodworker who needs some new inspiration, there’s something  here to make you a better maker.

Find out what it’s like to build a project for the most powerful man in the world, how a wooden bike feels compared with steel, and what to use when you need a leather look for a costume and don’t want any cows to die needlessly.

PLUS there’s a heap of tutorials:

  • Tell the time on a laser cut word clock
  • Grow hydroponic veg indoors
  • Build a homemade CNC machine
  • Tap screws in metal
  • Turn an Adafruit CPX into a games console
