On the second Thursday every month, the West Seattle Tool Library invites do-it-yourselfers to not just come check out tools, but come get free expert advice on projects/ideas you might be pursuing or considering – now or in the future. And tomorrow’s the January edition. From the announcement:

Our coaches have expertise in a variety of areas, including solar power, water harvesting, green architecture & building, permaculture, and urban gardening. This month’s lineup includes experts from: Mighty House Construction, Urban Land Army, Solar Epiphany, LD Arch Design, Alki Bike and Board, as well as members of our community at large

These open and informal community meetups offer an opportunity to bounce project ideas off fellow DIYers and maybe receive some advice in the process, if you like. It’s also a great time to show off what you’ve been working on. You bring your inspiration and your inquiring minds. We’ll bring the experts and the pizza! See you there!

The Tool Library is on the northeast side of Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

    “There’s got to be something we can use from all these tools to pry these two buckets apart.”

  2. Ditto! “Tool expert teaching workshop on how to separate stuck buckets. Learn from the pros. Next week’s workshop will be on how to fish your screwdriver out of the wall behind the kitchen cabinets.”

  3. The point being that experts can help no matter what level of complication your project has. LOL

  5. FYI: These local business owners and professionals volunteer their time and money (for food) month after month to be there for those interested in furthering their knowledge on green architecture and building, solar power, biking and urban gardening.

    It would be great to see some of you come on down and hang out.
