This class is designed to build the skills and confidence needed to tackle a small building. No experience required, we will cover safe work practices and teach proper operation of hand and power tools. The class focuses on traditional building methods supplemented with modern tooling. We employ square rule methodology to layout timbers. Then, we cut, and raise a small timber frame structure using traditional tools.

No experience needed. We supply the community tooling, instruction, and material. Along with your positive attitude, willingness to learn, you will need to bring the following:
