To spy a Leopold bench in someone's yard is to know something about the family who resides there. If you’ve ever wanted to build a Leopold bench, this workshop is for you! Join woodworker Gary Laib to learn about the history of Leopold bench design, receive plans and build a bench to bring home.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own tools; some tools will be available from Gary. Participants can opt bring their own materials to construct their bench or purchase materials for an additional fee.
Additionally, for participants traveling to the workshop that need overnight accommodations, lodging or tenting for Friday and Saturday night is available on site for $20/night. If you plan to camp or use the bunkhouse style lodging, please indicate this when you register. You may arrive at the site on Friday after 5 pm, but please, before 10 pm. Lodging is dorm style bunks/beds. There are indoor bathrooms and showers. If camping, you must bring your own tent and gear. Everyone staying overnight must provide their own sleeping bag or blankets, a pillow, and desired toiletries (bath towel, shampoo, etc). In the spirit of wilderness, our accommodations are fairly rustic!
