This is another timberframe project for the local Folk School, intended to display coming events and classes at the school. The upper frame is eastern white pine while the base and braces are oak. The oak was necessary to give some weight and stability so it wouldn’t be blown over by heavy winds or someone posting on it. I made the base 4×6’s four feet long which is approx. 2/3’s the height of it. This seems to work well. The rest is 3×4’s with mortis and tennon joinery. The shouldered m&t joints and blind m&t’s with curved corner braces are to show people what they could learn in some of the classes. I made my pegs out of oak on Ye Olde Shaving Horse and left them proud by about an inch on both sides just for the look. Stained chestnut brown and ready for delivery.
