Machine Workshop

Welcome to home of hands-on making at the Melbourne School of Design.


Welcome to the MSD Machine Workshop Knowledge Base. The Machine Workshop is one of several Maker Spaces, dedicated to supporting you throughout the entire making process. Here you will find a range of simple build projects to get you started, step-by-step instructions on taking your project from design to finished object, and to explore the equipment and materials used within the Machine Workshop. We are open to all APB students and staff that have completed the required Safety Inductions.

The aim of this Knowledge Base is to create a continually-updated library of articles to help students achieve the best possible results with their making needs working with timber.

Follow the column on the left hand side of the Knowledge Base to navigate your way through the information pertaining to your needs, and let this space be your first port of call when you have any questions regarding the Machine Workshop, our machines, materials and making processes.
