* Flex working space - I'm thinking we mark it off in 10x10 (or 12x12) grid so that people can "reserve" a zone for a project or a period of time. We just can't block egress, etc. The zones near the offices stay free for class space, meetings, etc.

* Matt had a great idea of letting members store a rolling cart something like: http://www.harborfreight.com/580-lb-capacity-four-drawer-roller-cart-95659.html - we create benches that these slide under. Members come and can roll their cart to wherever they want to work. They can lock their tools, parts, etc. in their cart. Carts not in use can have a door (or other wood) laid across them to create movable, temporary workbenches...
