The class focuses on getting acquainted with timber framing tools, practices, and techniques.   The course is a great starting point for a student interested in learning to timber frame.  We employ square rule methodology and build a sawhorse using traditional tools.  We also use a few power tools to speed the process along. 

In the class we will cut and assemble one sawhorse, which students take home. Students that work a little faster may get a start on a second sawhorse. Materials for s second sawhorse are available for any student that wishes to bring the materials home and further refine their timber framing skills.

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:

  • Bag Lunch

  • Foul Weather Clothing (Shop is heated but a few layers are nice this time of year)

  • Leather Shoes
