Sign Up for the January Purely Post and Beam Class

Mortise and tenon, dovetail, lap joint, through-tenon, birdsmouth notchposts, beams, braces, roof rafters . . . spend five days with the Shelter Institute staff and learn how to design, layout, cut, and assemble a timber frame structure.

At the end of the week you'll leave with detailed cut sheets for a 24x24 timber frame structure and the knowledge of how to masterfully craft a timber frame structure yourself.

The next Purely Post and Beam Class begins on Sunday, January 6th and runs through Friday, January 11th, 2013.
Don’t worry about January weather in Maine because the class is held in a 10,000-square foot heated workshop. You will need a few tools for the class. You probably have at least some of them, but you may need to pick up a few items from our tool list. The good news is that we have a great selection of timber framing tools in our specialty tools store, and the really good news is that we offer a LIFETIME 10% discount to our students on top of our already very competitive prices.

If you're looking for a good winter vacation, DownEast Magazine named Shelter an Editor's Choice for Best Working Vacation. The Purely Post & Beam class is also a great holiday gift.

Below is a slideshow of photos from a recent timber framing class. Take a look and see the class cut and raise a timber frame.

If you're a graduate of the course, please post a comment on your experience in our class!
