Timber Frame Construction Workshop, Northwest Washington

Taught by Arjuna (Oso) Steen and Jenna Pollard, this 7-day workshop will cover everything you need to know to craft a traditional timber frame structure. The building will serve as a community kitchen in northern Whatcom county in Washington State that the owners plan to open up to their friends and neighbors for collective food preparation, fermentation, and hosting future workshops! We will begin with an introduction to timber framing and design before diving into layout and planning our individual timbers. Next we will cover tools and then jump straight into cutting tenons and mortises. 

We will review timber harvesting and understanding wood grain, as well as draw boring and peg hole drilling. On the next day we will lay out and cut our wind braces as well as top plates. The workshop will conclude with a celebratory frame raising and roof assembly!
