Carbon Fiber Primer from MAKE Volume 09

There are certainly no shortage of cool carbon fiber-based projects that have been posted on Makezine, like the carbon fiber Macbook Air, bike frame, kegerator draft tower, and trekking poles. If you’ve been wanting to learn how to work with carbon fiber and need a good entry point, check out our carbon fiber primer from MAKE Volume 09 (March 2007, thus the iPod mini in the opener shot), now freely available on our DIY wiki, Make: Projects. Industrial design professor John Wanberg teaches you how to form, lay up, and cure your own high-performance composites in 12 steps. Check it out!

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
