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 downtown Grand Marais. Over three and a half days, you’ll use professional timber-framing equipment to construct a 4.5 ft 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.
