Timber framing workshop event 8/5/17 in Souther NH
« on: July 10, 2017, 09:27:11 am »
This event is open to all who want to attend and learn.

I'll be teaching a ONE day workshop Saturday Aug 5th, 2017 at the client's site in southern NH.
If you are interested in coming send me an email to jrsawmill (at) verizon (dot) net.
Cost is $40 per person. And we'll need at least 6 people to have enough bodies to move the timbers around.

We will be covering the "Frame Fit Up." This will be a student hands on workshop. We will test fit all the joints we can during that day for a 18' wide by 25' long cabin frame. Including a hammer beam bent, and roof cupola. This is your opportunity to see what happens after you have all your joints cut in order to get ready for your raising.

The host will provide lunch, and cold drinks if it is a hot day. We have a shady spot to work under the trees at his site. Directions will be sent out to those who chose to attend.

We'll start with a safety meeting at 8am and begin at 8:30 participants can drop out at any time in late afternoon. We plan on working till 5:30 pm.

PS. The FF will receive 5% of any fees collected from seeing this notice.

PPS. I will be doing more workshops. One will be the raising of this frame with the use of a gin pole, block and tackle. And one maybe another 12' x 16' "tiny house" here at the sawmill yard.
Whatever you do, have fun doing it!

Head count needed
Are you coming?
To all:
The host has asked me to get a head count on all who will be traveling to the weekend workshop this Saturday, at Sandown, NH.
They need to figure how many for lunch.

If you have replied and told me that you can't make it, that's ok. You don't need to reply again.

I'm asking for all the "maybe"(s) to reply and let me know so we can plan ahead.

Please send me an email and let me know if you can make it.
Thanks
