Learn Top-Notch Timber Framing from a Pro
Looking to take timber framing classes from a real pro? Jon Anderson can fulfill that need. He has extensive experience in timber framing, log cabin building, and dovetail construction, as well as expert cutting, rigging, sharpening, and layout skills. Anderson TimberWorks was founded to share traditional timber framing techniques through instructional classes.
Anderson TimberWorks classes are designed for the beginner Timber Framer. In class, students will practice timber framing and develop proficiency in reading and using shop drawings, timber layout, cutting joinery, tool sharpening, draw-boring, test-fitting, and raising a timber frame.
The courses provide students “hands on” experience with traditional timber framing tooling such as framing chisels, framing squares, boring machines, axes, mallets, handsaws, and auger bits. Students develop the skills needed to complete traditional timber framing projects by hand. We also introduce the safe application of modern power tools like circular saws, routers, sanders and chain mortisers to the timber framing process.
