Learn the Art of Timber Framing

Our first Basic Timber Framing Class in April filled up! So we were able to add a second class August 17-19. Class begins Friday, August 17th at 3pm. On the 18th and 19th class will being around 8 or 9am and finish by around 5pm. 

Clark Bremer, experienced Timber Framer and instructor will teach you the history of timber framing and provide you with a working knowledge of the basics. You’ll learn to plan, layout and cut the necessary joinery for a traditional timber frame as you work with others to construct and raise half of a small frame during the class.

Our 2018 project will be a timber framed Sauna/Screened Porch that will be raised on the shores of a remote northern Minnesota lake later this summer (see sketches here and here.)

Classes are limited to 6 to ensure a positive experience. Call or email today to reserve your spot: Chris Schellinger at 320.492.1444 or chris.schellinger@gmail.com
