Service Learning: Outdoor Timbered Benches

Course Overview

Help us build a bench! We need to build four sturdy, timbered outdoor benches for campus and the Grand Marais community center. 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. Over three and a half days, students will use professional timber-framing equipment to construct a 4.5 ft bench you'll be able to enjoy anytime you visit campus.
