"A classic timber frame is as practical and beautiful as it has been for centuries. In this beginner-friendly guide, veteran builder and educator Will Beemer brings the historic craft of timber framing within reach by walking you through the process of building a simple 12' x 16' structure -- a starter project large enough to serve as a cabin, workshop, or studio -- that can be modified to suit your needs. Along the way, you'll learn what makes timber framing distinctive, how to acquire and use local lumber, and the proper handling of chisels, saws, and other essential tools. Up-close photos and instructive diagrams illuminate each step, from preparing and cutting the timbers to the thrill of raising day." -- Back cover.
