Course Description

This hands on class is designed to teach students the fundamentals of structural timber framing. As a class, students will build a timber framed gazebo. Students will learn how to do all the layout by drawing everything full size on the floor. No math! Patrick encourages students to come and learn an age-old tradition of carpentry and participate in a team building project. By the end of the week students will leave with confidence and knowledge to tackle any backyard shelter or timber framed structure at home with success.
