User Projects

Here at the iForge we like to celebrate users who come in and use the space to make personal projects. We are always surprised with what people can come up with and have created this webpage to inspire more people to come into the iForge with crazy ideas of their own!

If you have something that you want featured on this page please fill out this form. You can add as little or as much information as you want, and if you need someone to take pictures of your work in progress for you, just ask any rep on shift!
