May 5-10 with instructors Ariel Burns and Kyle Murphy

In this timber framing course, students will layout timbers using the traditional square rule method developed in the early 1800s. Participants will learn proper hand tool use and sharpening techniques and will also have the opportunity to make pegs using a shaving horse and draw knife. The instructors will provide demonstrations of how to layout and cut a mortise and tenon, how to layout and cut braces, how to layout and cut step lap rafter seats, and more

This class will culminate with a hand raising of the newly cut timber frame. Students in this class will learn many aspects of traditional timber framing that should provide the basic skills and confidence to help them plan for and build their own timber frame structure in the future.
