Live Edge Furniture - Bench Class

10 AM- 5 PM 

Instructor: Luke Barnett

$130 Tuition + $120 Materials

Location: Sam Beauford Woodshop (Building #41)

Ages 16 & Up

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

If you have any questions, please contact Luke Barnett at (517) 902-8383 or luke@sambeaufordwoodshop.com

Minimum 4 Students, Maximum 6 

Optional: SBWI staff can add a CNC carved design to your bench or table 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 wood yourself with our CNC, there is no additional cost but you will be responsible for creating the design yourself before class.
