To keep our members informed, the Guild maintains a Facebook page and produces a quarterly technical journal (TIMBER FRAMING), a member magazine (Scantlings), an emailed newsletter (Guild Notes), and an active community discussion group comprised of timber frame enthusiasts from around the globe.

An index to TIMBER FRAMING is updated annually. Explore the index HERE to find articles of interest.
