Learn to operate BARN's Laguna CNC woodworking router and go home with an oval lidded box with custom engraving. Open to students who have beginning skills in Fusion 360, this class will introduce you to this design program’s CAM (computer assisted machining) functions.

At the first session in the ETA Studio, you will work in Fusion 360 to design your box. Starting with a standardized design, you will tweak the design and create custom engraving to add to the lid. At the second session in the Woodshop, you will use the CAM functions in Fusion 360 to develop tool paths for the router, output G code to run the router, and use the Laguna CNC to cut out and embellish your wooden box.

You will make the box from maple and walnut. With the lid, the box will be 5¼ inches long, 4 inches wide and up to 3 inches high. At the end of class, your box will be ready for sanding and finishing.
