CNC & Machining Craft & Design Woodworking Workshop
Laney FabLab Dodecahedron

Members of Oakland, California’s Laney College FabLab showed off a large plywood dodecahedron at the 2015 Bay Area Maker Faire. The room-sized structure was cut using CNC fabrication and fits together without any need for glue or nails, making it relatively easy to set up and break down.

Aside from serving as a great project for the FabLab’s students, the dodecahedron will also be used as a showpiece on campus to recruit new students to the program. The design concept was originally proposed by a student as a design for an audio speaker, the prototype for which is displayed inside the structure.
