Combine two disciplines into one great project. Make a live edge slab bench for your home or garden. This bench will have a native hardwood top, and a welded base bottom. In week one we will learn some basic woodworking and finishing techniques to make our top perfect. In the second week, we will learn the basics of welding to create a steel base for your bench.

Optional: SBW staff can add a CNC carved design to your bench for an additional cost of $100 (see example below). Note: If you have attended the Intro to CNC class and would like to carve the seat yourself with our CNC, there is no additional cost but you will be responsible for creating the design yourself before class.
