About this Event

Designed to teach the fundamentals of historic timber work to students of all skill levels, this course offers the opportunity to construct a timber frame structure incorporating traditional mortise and tenon and other joints. Students gain an understanding of the layout and construction of historic timber frames, including barns and dwellings, as they construct a woodshed. Traditional tools are used, including framing chisels, hand crosscut and rip saws, marking gauges and hand boring machines. Topics include: Layout and cutting of sills, posts, floor framing, braces, tie-girts, rafters, purlins and studding, draw boring and pinning, and square rule and scribe rule systems.
