Local NBC affiliate KARE11's Boyd Huppert was on campus last week to speak with St. Olaf Cabinetmaker Gregg Menning and Professor of Biology Charles Umbanhowar Jr. about the benches and tables that are being crafted out of trees cleared from the Regents Hall construction site.

"This place is quite Norwegian," explains Menning. "They make use of everything."
