Sandusky High School wood shop classes are offering the community a piece of history.

Industrial Tech Instructor Tony Limberios came up with the project for his wood shop classes after he came across the old wooden bleachers from Strobel Field just lying around.

"Wood is the most expensive part of everything we do," he said. "The bleachers were just sitting there, so we asked if we could have them. I couldn't tell you how many benches we took, but we've already got about 15 chairs done, five in the works and plenty of wood left."
