Introduction to Timber Framing
Even experienced woodworkers will enjoy this great introduction to the craft of timber framing. Students will lay out and cut the joinery for a beautifully sculpted timber frame before assembling it. Throughout the workshop, students will utilize traditional hand tools and some specialized power tools.
The traditional mortised, tenoned, and pegged joinery is a joy to make as well as live with and is stronger than conventional framing. We will be teaching traditional methods. We will be teaching traditional methods, using tools and materials that many carpenters already have or which can be found locally for a minimum investment.
The program runs on April 23 - 28, 2018 (Monday - Saturday)
