Traditional Timber Framing - $550
Micah Seals & Tim Dennis
Learn basic timber frame joinery techniques while creating an Artful Entrance Pavilion from cypress. From layout to handraising, participate in all aspects of heavy timber framing to include reading shop drawings, tooling, joint layout, and cutting. Raise the completed pavilion on the grounds of the Appalachian Center for Craft. Due to time constraints, some of the joinery will be completed prior to the workshop. Conclude the class with an optional tour of Homestead Timber Frames, Inc., in Crossville, Tennessee.
