For this project, you don't actually need any SBU's, or Safety and Basic Use classes through TechShop. Everything done in this afternoon project can be completed through the use of hand tools!
What is needed is:
Screwdrivers needed to remove components out of the printer (Usually smaller phillips and torx)
Dremel or some other rotary tool with a cutting wheel.
Step 1: Opening It Up
Step 2: Cutting!
Step 3: Preparing and Installing the Board
That's pretty much it! Like I said there are many ways of approaching this, and many ways to make it look awesome. The board could be laser etched, painted or otherwise finished. A piece of water-cut aluminum or more. An easy few hours thank to TechShop.
