Title: Trimber framing, post/beam wood working skills
Post by: Robert Hale on December 07, 2017, 06:31:49 PM
I am thinking of coming up to Maine next year to take the Shelter Institute's one week class on post and beam woodworking. I am doing it to learn a new skillset that I don't have and the VA can pay for the tuition. Would these skills be helpful in building cars/buildings at the museum? I would also stop by as well to visit before I left for home.

Not to take away from the Shelter Institute's program but Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson (one of the towns adjoining Alna) puts on an excellent weeklong timber framing workshop several times a year. I have had several friends attend, and all speak very highly of it.
