Steve Robinson

Steve Robinson has been making guitars since his first attempt in the woodwork shop while he was at school. He now has 15 at home that he can’t bear to part with.

 

He decided to create his next work of art at Trafford Fab Lab using our Shopbot CNC milling machine and our laser cutter. And the end result is stunning.

 

Says Steve: “I did the Fab Lab Christmas decorations course to see how it all worked and to get the health and safety briefing. I thought it was a good way to learn. I saw lots of different ideas.

 

“I decided to make a guitar for my granddaughter on the shopbot and I’ve now got a second one which is still in progress. I use templates, and it is much easier to draw the design on the computer. Then I cut the plastic I need on the laser cutter. I’m really pleased with it. 

 

“I repair guitars for a living and I’ve got 15 at home, but, as my wife always says, I can only play one at once.

 

“Everyone at the Fab Lab has been really helpful. It’s a fantastic resource. I’ve used the laser cutter, shopbot and vinyl cutter. All that’s left to learn about is 3-D printing. “
