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. 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 bench. 

If you have any questions, please contact Luke Barnett at (517) 902-8383 or

Minimum 4 Students, Maximum 6 

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.
