Interested in learning the craft of timber framing? If so, check out Learn to Timber Frame by Will Beemer, Fine Homebuilding author, founding member of the Timber Framers Guild, and owner of the Heartland School for the Homebuilding Crafts in Washington, Mass. Drawing on Beemer’s 40 years of experience, the 192-page book explains the basics of timber-frame construction and joinery by walking readers through the creation of a 12-ft. by 16-ft. building that can serve as a cabin, potting shed, or workshop. Plenty of color photographs and clear illustrations help to demonstrate the construction and joinery methods.
Published by Storey Publishing, Learn to Timber Frame sells for $25.
