Looking for the perfect makerspace?  Look no further, you have found the place!

Why settle for a small, cramped makerspace when you can come to TheShop.build and have everything.  Yes we have the 3D printers and Laser cutters that everyone else has in addition to complete Wood, Metal and Machine shops for you to complete the most complex project in.

Looking for CNC machines to work with? We have a Tormach CNC Mill in our machine shop and a 4 foot by 8 foot Shopbot CNC router in our woodshop.  Our Waterjet will slice through everything from 2 inch thick steel and granite to thin sheets of aluminum or plastic.

And we aren't stopping with what we have.  We recently installed a Wizard CNC Mat Cutter.  We also just got a small 5 axis CNC Mill to use.

Want to learn to use our equipment?  We've got you covered!  Check out our Class Schedule.   We are in the process of adding new advanced classes and workshops that will take you from machine basics to machine experts.

We also have a complete line of STEAM Classes for your younger Makers.

Here is the link if you are looking for San Jose STEAM Classes.

Tired of broken machines?  Our professional staff maintains all of our equipment daily to keep it ready to use.  They are also here to answer any questions you might have.  They love to help our members.

Ready to join?  Check out our great membership options or come on down for a free tour today.  Not quite ready to join but want us to keep in touch?  Sign up for our newsletter.


We all have dreams about building something.  It may be a one of a kind table or a 1/8 scale working steam locomotive.  Some of you dream of building a new business.

Here at TheShop we can help you make those dreams come true


Don't know how to take your dream from a plan in your head to a plan on paper?  We can help with that.  We have classes on how to use the latest design software.

Do you need to learn to use the machines to build your dream?  We can help you with that as well.

Sign up for one of our many classes today.


Now that you have the dream and the know how, use the tools to turn that dream into reality.

We have large wood, machine, and metal shops at your disposal.  You can use our 3D printers and laser cutters.  Our fabric arts area has everything you need to make custom T-shirts or a Quilt to pass down to your grandchildren. 

Take a virtual tour here to see what we offer.
