In this hands-on workshop, we will build a complete timber frame using traditional joinery details. Joinery design, timber selection, layout and cutting will be a primary emphasis with particular attention being paid to the art of ‘perfect execution’. Each joint will be systematically laid out and cut by the students, allowing them an opportunity to gain the first-hand knowledge of joinery layout and the feel of cutting a timber frame in the traditional manner. Throughout the process we attempt to instill the confidence and ability to cut a frame on your own.
