Timber Framing Joinery and Hewing Demonstration with Roy Underhill and Jasper Mayer
April 23 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Learn to be true with a traditional timber framing demo from the brilliant beam of a man, Roy Underhill, and his accomplice, Jasper Mayer. The class will start with the raw timber, working from sledge to wedge and hewing with a hewing axe. You’ll learn to true the timber while joggling and hewing your log, then cover timber frame joinery including half dovetails for bracing and joining the frame with mortice and tenon joints.
Roy instructed Jasper in a joinery journey to build his timber frame shop with these techniques during the pandemic.
