Timber Framing Workshop

  • Enfield Shaker Museum 447 NH Route 4A Enfield, NH 03748 (map)

Join local timber framer Tim Baker at Enfield Shaker Village for a second session on timber framing and the joinery techniques used in historic Shaker buildings. Build on your work from the first session or start with the 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. Participants will have an opportunity to work on the restoration of a timber frame in a Shaker building on site.  All tools and materials will be supplied. Please bring a bag lunch. The workshop will meet on the back porch of the Great Stone Dwelling.

Cost: $75 per person. $68 for members. Class size limited to 10 so register early!
