WKS808: Wooden Garden Bench
Class Number 1703-111376

Increase your woodworking skills and build a beautiful project for your home!

In this 2-part workshop, your instructor will walk you through the process of building a functional garden bench and also show you woodworking techniques you can apply to future projects and help you streamline your own woodworking procedures. This workshop is designed to help you budget your time for large projects as well as increase your confidence using the tools in the woodshop.

Your instructor will give you ideas on customizing the bench with other areas of the shop, such as embellishments from the waterjet or laser cutters.

After this workshop, you will have a full-size bench that you may paint, stain, or leave to weather naturally.
