Tillers Timber Framing classes are intensive hands-on classes. Enjoy the full experience of preparing timbers and raising a timber framed building. Fit mortise and tenon joints and peg them with white oak, very much like barn building 150 years ago. An engineer discusses design elements. Skilled framers guide you through layout, boring and chiseling mortises, forming tenons, cutting wind braces, assembling bents, and finally the thrill of raising day! Enjoy real teamwork! (The timber frame is frequently sold to help defray the costs of instruction.) Please enroll a month in advance to allow for materials preparation.
