Make It Take It: Bench – EVANSTON

04/27/2024 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm CDT

$115.00 - $145.00
In this workshop you will select, plan, and construct your own bench from reclaimed wood.

From the garden to the garage to the dining room, benches are the ultimate utility furniture. In this workshop you will construct your own bench from reclaimed wood. The instructor will guide you through all things safety related so you can confidently build your bench and develop woodworking skills. You will make measurements, cuts, and assemble a work of art your behind will surely enjoy. No prior experience is necessary and equipment is provided.

*We will use materials currently available in the warehouse so the look of finished projects may vary from the photo.
