Join The Community - A Special Offer for Friends of the Guild


The Timber Framers Guild was established in the 1980s to create a sharing community for those who love and practice the art of timber framing.  Members are timber framers, students, engineers, architects, designers, entrepreneurs, timber purveyors, tool suppliers, educators, historians, preservationists, sustainable builders, industry suppliers, owners, and lovers of wood.

This special offer gives you a 15% discount on individual, family, gift, or institutional memberships.

As a member you will connect with others who are passionate about timber framing -- to learn more about timber framing, take part in community building projects, educate others, and invest in the work of the Timber Framers Guild.  Our members gather at places across North America for timber frame raisings that we coordinate at state parks, town greens, land trusts, and other non-profits that need a building, barn, pavilion, farmer's market, or other structure. Our members also gather online for how-to webinars, demonstrations, and presentations about the history or future of timber framing. In addition, you will receive our journal, TIMBER FRAMING, and our member magazine Scantlings
