PROJECT - Project- Three Timber Hammer Bent Frame Trusses with Connecting Girts forming a space of 20 ft. x 30 ft. with a cathedral ceiling 21 ft. high. Each Frame Truss is comprised of Fir 8” x 10” Posts with 6” x 10”Hammer Girts & Posts; 6” x 10” Anchor Beam, King Post and Principal Rafters, and 4” x 12” curved kneebraces. 8” x 8” Purlins with 6” x 10” Ridge form the gable roof system. This Project employs Square-rule Layout on virtually ?corrected? timbers thereby allowing for precise joinery on curved, twisted or tapered wood.

This semester was full of gifted woodworkers, hearty, intelligent and inspiring. I am truly sad to see it end...Too many good people in this course, whom have come with the same goal in mind. Having achieved new skills, I cannot wait to see the creativity that will manifest from this program. Be it to build a family home, to add timber and log elements to design and/ or to work within this booming Industry, you are ready. Jump in with both feet.
