Makerspace are about ingenuity, so it would be sure interesting to use that ingenuity to help in funding the space. 

For example, check out this nice dog pet bed made from an older television cabinet. 


(scroll down) 

This kind of thing could sell for $75 or more. True, it takes some real labor to remove and dispose of 
the television guts -- not to mention picking up the cabinets from donors. 

Just wanted to share the idea, though. This kind of thing makes for an easy newspaper 
article topic -- and the newspaper article exposure could boost the makerspace, too. 


btw, there's a neat open source subtheme to these kinds of conversions. People might 
ask, "What else can I convert to new uses?" -- and the obvious answer is -- Windows and Intel Mac computers to Linux.
