Pangloss WoodLab

Pangloss Wood Lab is a 90m2 shared wood workshop that offers professional woodworking machines to association members. It is located in the center of Sergy (01610) in the Pays de Gex. The workshop exists as a complement to the Pangloss FabLab in Ferney-Voltaire.

The workshop is accessible seven days a week, but the large (noisy) machines can only be used during the hours regulated by the municipality of Sergy.  All the tools, except the digital machines, are made available with the workspace and included in the prices.

We have a range of different machines in the woodlab, suitable for different types of project, from hobbyist to professional.  We do not (yet) sell material for making your projects, but may have small scrap/leftover pieces for testing.  Before using a machine, you will need to be trained by the lab manager.  Use of machines is on a first come first served basis.  Hand tools, and portable electric tools are also available.  Members must supply their own wood, sandpaper and glue.
