Benched

Benches can be practical or symbolic. They can hold us up at dinner or be our viewing spot for the entire game. They imply community and congeniality. Come sit next to me on the bench, is a friendly invite. Where is your head? Go sit on the bench, is my old coach talking to me.

This season we worked with the City of Albany’s Parks and Rec department and the amazing Mark Azevedo, botanist and sawyer,  to build furniture for a Benefit Auction.

This 1st Thursday from 5 to 8PM at the Studio we’ll have a Silent Auction to help raise money for white oak habitat restoration in the Albany area. Using white oak reclaimed from a site clear cut, the Mastery graduates built benches of this wood. No limits on the designs of any of the work. Just an opportunity for them to design and build with this marvelous wood.

Please join us along with our sponsor, Base Camp Brewing, at the Studio for this great event.
