Cornerstone Workshop

Cornerstone Design@Mines offers two workshop spaces: the Digger Design Lab and the Cornerstone Woodshop.

The Digger Design Lab is the newest offering to compliment Mines’ growing network of create-make-collaborate spaces. With the attached Cornerstone woodshop,  the Digger Design lab specialty is lower-accuracy fabrication and messy assembly – no worries about making scratches in the tables here!  The Digger Design Lab is open to all students via Blaster Access Monday-Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.  Please check the online schedule for the latest schedule updates.  With your suggestions, the Maker Club and Cornerstone will work to continuously improve equipment and hours so that this network of spaces can meet your needs and inspire you.

The Cornerstone Woodshop may be used during the supervised hours posted below, or upon special request. Students are never permitted to use the shop alone, or use power tools without shop supervision. Please visit the Workshop Hours page for a downloadable workshop schedule as well as the Workshop Policies page for the safety rules and general guidelines.

These spaces are your spaces, and the main rule is to treat it as if it’s yours: keep it neat and clean, and take care of the materials and tools and space.

Entrance is on the lower level on the backside of the Engineering Annex. Please come check us out!

And, something to note: Arthur Lakes Library also has a variety of different tools available for checkout if you need to work on projects outside of workshop hours. Click here to checkout what the library has for your use!
