Wooden gear clock workshop (using a CNC router)
Sept 8, 2012 | 2-5pm
A CNC router is a computer controlled machine for cutting various hard materials, such as wood, composites, aluminum, steel, plastics, and foams. For this workshop, the CNC router will be used to cut and shape all the parts used in assembling a wooden gear clock, based on clockwork principles that have endured for hundreds of years. Through this workshop, you will gain an understanding of how a CNC router works, preparing you for your own DIY projects using the machine. The workshop will be led by Ismael Touq, who can be contacted on 055 923-7389.
