NOB Memorial Bench
The inspiration for this bench began in 2003 when our president Jim Auer passed away suddenly. As a memorial to Jim and other NOB members, we built this bench. Members made seat and back slats in their own shops. The frame is wrought iron from a bridge near Grand Rapids, Ohio. The bench was assembled and finished over several meetings as a group effort. When a NOB member joins the Master's Forge, his or her name is placed on the brass top plate.
