In this class, students will build an old fashioned farm bench out of pine. Students will layout and design a bench and then proceed to make a cut list. Using machine and power tools, students will mill lumber and rip and cross cut their materials according to their layout and cut list. Students will get instruction on shop and tool safety and assistance in operating all machinery necessary to complete their project. The goal of the class is to build a traditional farm bench that can be painted or finished and used a a bench in the yard or at the foot of the bed.
