Service Learning Project: Adirondack Chair Building

Course Overview

You can never have too many comfortable chairs to sit in and gaze at Lake Superior! Join instructor Randy Schnobrich in this service learning session of Adirondack Chair Building to construct these classic chairs for the North House campus. Using both power and hand tools, you’ll cut, shape, sand and assemble a rot-resistant cedar Adirondack chair that will grace the North House campus back deck, fire circle or outdoor commons. You will leave with the experience to build similar chairs at home and a satisfied feeling of crafting a quality chair that will be appreciated by countless students and visitors to North House for years to come. Experienced woodworkers and ambitious beginners welcome; lunch provided on days 2 & 3.
