& Celebration Rendezvous 

August 31-September 2, 2019
Malabar Farm State Park
4050 Bromfield Rd.
Lucas, OH 44843


It’s hard to believe that it will be 25 years this coming Labor Day weekend since the Timber Framers Guild raised the reconstructed timber frame for the Big Barn at Malabar Farm State Park! The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is planning a celebration at the park and part of the events will be a timber frame workshop to cut and raise a white oak timber frame to be used for demonstrations during the annual Maple Syrup Festival held every spring. Members of the Timber Framers Guild will be joined by Friends of Ohio Barns cutting the frame and interacting with the park visitors and spreading the word about timber framing and barn conservation. The timbers for the frame are being donated by long time Guild supporter Hochstetler Timbers from Loudonville, Ohio and the workshop is being facilitated by JCM Timberworks from Killbuck, Ohio. The frame design was donated by Christian & Son, Inc. of Burbank, Ohio and long time Guild members Laura Saeger and Rudy Christian will be leading the workshop instruction and raising. You are invited! There will not be a registration fee, but you can notify us by phone at 330-624-7282 or via email if you plan to attend so we know we have lunch and saw horses for you!
