Tillers specializes in hand tool wood work. The Donald and Hilda Myers Woodshop brings together old tools and skilled teachers in a stimulating environment. Build skills for producing quality work independent of electricity. The fun is testing yourself against the work of old time woodworkers!
Tillers timber frame classes specialize in historical post and beam construction, featuring hand tools such as boring mills and framing chisels. Modern power tools are demonstrated and used on the margins. The classes build skills for producing quality work with or without the use of electricity. The key to good handwork is in knowing the strengths of tools and keeping them sharp. A scholarship for aspiring professional framers was created by Jim and Virlee Weaver.
