I’ve been working on timber framing a shop for awhile. Finally shot a film of it and decided to share it. I thought this would be a good place to show what I have done so far and progression as I go.

Here’s the next installment, I think I made it a little long. New to the Youtube thing, I’m open to suggestions friendly or otherwise.

Beautiful, clean work and a fun watch. I don’t think they are too long at all. I’ve always loved timber framing structures so it captured my interest. I did note that you’ve put up Parts 1,2 and 4. Not sure if you missed Part 3 or if the videos don’t have the right sequencing.

Here’s part three, just a discussion on the hand tools.

BTW, thank you for the kind words. This is a neat opportunity for me to build my dream shop and film as I go. Eventually I’m hoping to build a good channel and meet some good people along the way. Wish I had filmed it from the start.

Do you have any pictures you could put on this site instead of just a link to another site?

I certainly can, I have quite a few actually. It will take me a bit but I’ll be happy to.

No barn work this week, working on cleaning out my little 16×24 shop to make room for working the timbers. You would be amazed at how much junk can pile up in a little building. Hopefully I’ll have more up for guys soon.

Well it’s been awhile since I’ve updated here so I thought I’d show you guys where I’m at. Stood another bent this past weekend and had the camera rolling. It went well. I have quite a few videos in between now and the last time but you guys can find them through this one If interested.

Just saw your new post. I’ll have to check out the videos later (can’t watch them now), but I was wondering if you ever posted any pictures of the build? It sounds interesting.

Have your say...
