Oak Timber Frame Building - participants will work together
to construct a frame 8ft by 10ft and the roof structure. This
will provide the opportunity to learn the main techniques and
skills in laying out the frame, marking and cutting the joints,
constructing the roof, making oak pegs and erecting the
frame. This is a practical course using hand tools and also
demonstrating the use of power tools. The course will cover
traditional and modern framing techniques. There will be an
introductory session on planning and managing a timber
frame project and general discussion/ demonstration
sessions but the emphasis will be on practical hands-on
working. The course will be based in and around the
workshop.
