An effort two years in the making would establish a community fabrication lab on Kauai that would be a material and technical resource for everyone from hobbyists to entrepreneurs.
Founding member Carl Lozar is currently a stay-at-home dad in the Wailua Homesteads while his spouse works at Wilcox Memorial Hospital. He put his career in brain imaging aside for the time being, and is enjoying the chance to help start the Kauai Makers group.
“Our goal is to create a community workspace with tools and helpful members to facilitate making, creating, crafting and inventing,” Lozar said. “Additionally, we want to pursue projects that further our education with builds that improve our technical competence. Finally, many of our members have or want to develop their ideas into business, so we seek to support and assist each other as entrepreneurs.”
