About this event

In this 2-hour workshop you will learn how to use the Wood Lab machines at MotionLab.Berlin. These machines allow you to prototype parts through subtracting material by drilling, planing, cutting, sanding and milling parts of it. By the end of the session, you will have practiced different types of preparing wood the way you would possibly need it for your future project.

  • Rip wood on a band saw
  • Plane wood to create a flat board
