Wood Summer Session 5

Wood Summer Session 5
July 19 – August 4, 2020
Raivo Vihman
Timber Vernacular

Think mortise and tenon joinery, but think big. In this collaborative workshop, we’ll delve into the ins and outs of woodworking on a timber scale. Each student will begin by building a pair of splayed leg sawhorses to use as a work station. We’ll spend the rest of the time constructing a small, structural timber frame joined with mortises, tenons, pegs, and wedges while developing skills with hand tools and power tools. Topics will include joinery design, layout strategies, working with green wood, and scribing natural forms. The frame we build will be disassembled and sold in the scholarship auction. All levels.
