Join Opendesk as a Maker

Opendesk offers professional CNC workshops paid work making well-mastered designs for local customers.

On joining the network, you will be granted a commercial license to make Opendesks. You trade under your own brand and deal directly with customers. There’s no requirement to hold inventory: you just need professional-standard CNC capability and reasonable access to plywood sheets.

As set out in our business model, you are completely free to set your own prices for fabrication, finishing and any other services you choose to provide.

What we ask in return is that you add a royalty percentage onto your costs (on behalf of the platform and designers) when quoting for customers.
