Introduction to Timber Framing

Join local timber framer Tim Baker on a tour of two Shaker buildings with exposed timber frames to see examples of historic and restoration joinery techniques. Learn timber framing fundamentals while you try your hand at the layout and cutting of mortise-and-tenon joints and carving wooden pegs. The proper use of hand tools to cut joinery and tool sharpening will also be covered. An added feature of the workshop will be helping to replace a beam in the Enfield Shaker's Laundry/Dairy building. All tools and materials will be supplied. Please bring a bag lunch..

Cost: $65 per person. $57 Museum members. Class size limited to 10.
