June Timber Framing Demonstration

Timber Frame Layout

Live Timber Framing Demonstration

On June 25th, we will hold another live timber framing demonstration at our shop. This is a second opportunity for those who missed our first demonstration on how we layout and cut the joinery that is the heart and soul of a timber frame. The demonstration will focus on the process of timber selection, layout and how we use a combination of power and hand tools to quickly, accurately and efficiently cut joinery. Part academic but mostly hands on, we will be also explaining; how and why we use Square Rule Joinery, what housings and reference faces are, how we grade and select timbers for both strength and appearance, as well as the characteristics of wood that determine joint placement and type.

Topics of the Demonstration Include:
  • Selection of Timbers
  • Visual Grading timber
  • Square Rule Joinery
  • Housings and Reductions
  • Hand tools
  • Specialized Power Tools
