Introduction to the CNC - Pattern-Making

Introduction to the CNC - Pattern-Making


Get ready to explore the endless possibilities with our CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) Machine!

In this fun single-session class you will learn all the steps to cut out patterns on a CNC machine. We’ll go through the process of design and tool-path creation within our VCarve Pro software, discuss CNC bit selection, and, set up and run our 4’x4’ custom CNC machine. We will focus heavily on technique, safety and proper tool usage throughout the class.

You will leave our shop with a fun pattern-cut cell phone holder (see photos). We’ll also have fun using a few other tools in the shop to sand, assemble and finish the cell phone holders. Most importantly, you’ll have learned the skills to design and make more CNC creations!

Open to members and non-members! Limited to 2 participants per class. Cost includes all materials.

Please note: Class fees are fully refundable with at least 7 days advance notice. Fees are nonrefundable if given less than 7 days notice. Thank you.
