Publications

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

Want to contribute to Scantlings? We are always looking for great articles, feature pieces, and member news. Contact Allison in the Guild office for information about deadlines and content guidelines.

To view and download those issues of Timber Framing or Scantlings, simply click on "Archives" and look for publications that are at least five years old.  Hard copies of some issues are available for purchase from the Guild; contact info@tfguild.org to buy one.
