About the event

Saw Horse Class 

Join our Saw Horse Class for a hands-on journey into the timeless craft of timber framing. In this workshop, participants will craft their own set of saw horses from sturdy 6 x 6 timbers, gaining practical skills in timber framing essentials such as square rule layout, tenon and mortise cutting, test fitting, and draw-boring. These saw horses, made with precision and care, aren't just a class project – they're yours to take home and enhance your woodworking endeavors. Whether you're a woodworking enthusiast or a beginner eager to explore timber framing, this class offers a unique opportunity to learn the basics while creating a functional masterpiece for your home shop or work area.
