He is actively interviewing for placements through the Makership project with startup firms and is currently awaiting the final stages of a Makership job placement.
Johnny Naples joined the Makership project in the first cohort in August of 2013 and brings his skills as a journeyman Sheet Metal Worker, Local #12. Johnny’s design background has led him to create motorcycle parts and he eventually wants to own his own fabrication firm. Johnny is a supportive member of the Makership community and leads a welding practice group every other Thursday at Tech Shop for fellow makers, participating in peer-to-peer learning practices. He is formally trained in sheet metal and has worked on metal forming, power coating and deepening welding skills while in the program.

Rick Shelkey was in the first cohort of the Makership Project in August of 2013 and also began his first year in the apprenticeship program of the Sheet Metal Worker’s Local #12 at that time. He was placed quickly with CMU start-up Sole Power and is the longest placed trainee of the Makership project. He is concurrently training with both organizations and keeps busy with employer placements for both credentials. With a degree in finance, Rick is currently using his financial background and his maker skills in his Makership placement with Sole Power, a startup company that has developed a power-generating shoe insert.
Damone Wills joined the Makership project in October of 2013 with the intention of building his skills to get accepted into the Sheet Metal Workers Local #12. Damone’s family comes first and as a father of seven, his goal was to get into a union apprenticeship program to create a better life for his family. His work background is in landscaping and general labor, but he knew he was capable of more. Damone has been practicing his welding, machining, CNC, and sheet metal skills. Damone was accepted into the Sheet Metal Workers, Local 12 apprenticeship program with the recommendation from fellow Makership participant, John Naples, a journeyman Sheet Metal Worker.
