Another space on site known as the Fab Lab, which is dedicated to folks working in the realm of environmentally friendly sustainable design and appropriate technology.

The space is suited for metal and woodworking, soldering, custom bike frame & trailer fabrication. We have shared tools including table saw, metal & wood chop saw, band saw, drill press, a small CNC machine, a mill and several hand tools.
