Outdoor Timbered Benches
A sturdy, timbered outdoor bench will invite years of use and is perfect for long conversations, a short break from walking, or simply watching the world go by. This unique bench design borrows joinery common to timber frame construction and utilizes rough-cut, sustainably-harvested white pine timbers. It’s beautiful, comfortable and highly durable. We should know: North House has built several benches in this style for our campus as well as for downtown Grand Marais. Over three and a half days, you’ll use professional timber framing equipment to construct a 4.5-foot bench, ready to be finished and located in a spot with a view. Due to the size of this project, students are highly encouraged to bring a partner at no extra cost.
Students should note that while this course welcomes participants of all levels, students should expect to utilize a variety of power tools and work with large timbers—thus, some woodworking experience is helpful but not required.
Includes materials fee of $160.00
