Danny is a frequent user at the Boston Fab Lab. He has done some great work to figure out the laser cutter. In nice Fab Lab community fashion, Danny has encouraged and tutored many other lab users on how to get the most out of the tools in the lab.
The Boston Fab Lab is housed in the South End Technology Center, and is supported by the Center for Bits and Atoms at the MIT Media Lab. The lab has open hours on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons. If you would like to get your hands on some of the tools you have been hearing about in Make, then it may be worth a visit.
Mostly staffed by volunteers, the Fab Lab community depends on the cooperative effort of people helping people. Once you know how to do something, you pass along the experience to some other person, and share your ideas and techniques. You may also want to take a look at some of the documentation created by users of the Boston Fab Lab. There are also some photos in the Boston Fab Lab Flickr Pool.
