Sculptural benches in Alaskan yellow cedar, stainless steel, and galvanized steel supports; the individual ribs were assembled by hand and attached to the steel superstructure hidden within. The benches were first modeled in the computer, then each unique part was machined in wood on a five-axis CNC router.This woodworking project is one of most recognized project.
The "ribs" of these beautiful benches were modeled on the computer before they were cut. The Harvard University benches was one of our most challenging woodworking projects but the results were worth it!(C) Barrett Doherty

Evening sets on the Harvard benches. One of the best shots of the benches. Each unique piece of the bench is logged in our computer system so in case any part of the bench were to get damaged we would be able to repair just that piece to a tee.(C) Charles Mayer
