About Cubicle23

Cubicle23 is the not so clever name from my cubicle assignment at the maker space Technocopia in Worcester, MA.

Hello my name is Joe. I have been a tinkerer my entire life and I hope to share some of my interests with you. Cubicle23 is my cube address inside the fantastic makerspace, Technocopia, in Worcester MA. I moved my small shop, tools and supplies there in the summer of 2018. Technocopia offers a metalworking shop, wood shop, digital design, glass working, laser cutting, vinyl cutting, sewing & leather machines and much more. This made the decision to move from my backyard shed very easy.

The cost of membership and a rental cube space is very reasonable. I justify the cost by looking at the machinery I have at my disposal.  Even if I had the space, I could not afford even the homeowner version of these industrial size and quality tools. A full 4×8 foot cnc router, 4×4  140 watt laser cutter and 4×4 Lincoln Plasma cutter are but a few of the ones that come to mind. A list most of the tools is here.

This site is where you can find out what the latest projects are, when I am streaming and what is coming up for ideas.
Live streams will be mostly weekdays on Twitch , look for @Cubicle23.

After a varied career as the General Manager of a  300k sq/ft warehouse , Chief Technical Officer for a worldwide auto parts chain, to my own web hosting and development business. I am finished working but still want to remain as active as possible.

In 2009 a serious surgical error left me with significant nerve damage issues that you will undoubtedly learn about if you watch the streams as I have to take frequent breaks. The effects can range from barely noticeable to incapacitating.  I utilize natural medicines and meditation to help with it all as hardcore pain medication is not a viable or wise lifelong solution. I hope you will understand the ups and downs & just roll with it like I do.

Ignore this link. It is a test for download links. Projects that have 3D printing files or blocks of code etc will need a way for users to download them. I am testing the best way to do that.
