Re: historic hewing questionnaire northern hewer 04/05/24 02:37 AM
Hi everyone tonite

A winter nite here in the seaway valley.
When I think of the seaway construction, I think of the ruination of some of the oldest farms,orchards, resorts,and towns that was along the St Lawrence river, and I might add islands too, shame,

What we received in returns was a large lake with slow moving water, ruined fish spawning grounds, I could go on, but no one. Listens, soon no one will be left that remembers anyway

In the process we lost thousands of early houses, barns and drive sheds

Well we were promised cheap power, I can't really remember that happening

Thanks to a few individuals we rescued enough period buildings for UCV

Anyway sorry for my ramblings, but it is a real Shame what happened, yes I forgot something real impt in my book,all the cemeteries inundated imagine along with the old gas stations polluted land, still there just a few feet down, now they worry about trivial things

Bye for now
Richard

Timber Framing Take Offs and Estimates RLTJohn 03/19/24 03:04 PM
What is your go-to software for doing timber take-offs and estimates?
I currently just use excel and some of the functionality of BlueBeam Revu.

I find many take-off and estimating softwares don't work well for timber framing.

Timber Frame Learning Center April Class Jim Rogers 03/19/24 12:57 AM
It’s that time again! The Timber Frame Learning Center of Western North Carolina’s Spring workshop starts April 22nd and ends with a raising (if all goes as expected) on April 27th.
We will be cutting an attendee purchased 12’x12’ frame for their homestead.
The workshop will be hosted at our shop at 1132 Old Fort Road, Fairview, NC. 28730; conveniently nestled near Asheville and Black Mountain, NC. Class size is limited to 12 folks, only a few spots left!
Jim and I will cover basic mortise and tenon joinery, fit-up and raising principles. There is a sawmill on site, so we will chat about that, sharpening, using a shave horse and whatever other topics you might want to discuss.
Home cooked lunches will be provided!
Jim has instructed the traditional method for years. Dan attended a workshop instructed by Jim and went on to work at Timberframe Horizons, LLC.
This partnership allows us to touch on traditional,
quarry view woodworks.com as well as production timber framing.
For more information, check out QuarryViewWoodworks.com, or email Jim at jrsawmill@verizon.net or Dan at imintotrees@gmail.com. After reaching out, we will send out more info and a registration link. Thanks!
