TFGuild and Folk School Blacksmith Shop Slideshow

We have a nice little slide show for you if you are interested at all in cool timber framing. We spent two weeks at the John C. Campbell Folk School cutting and raising this timber frame with 40 other timber framers, put on by the Timber Framer's Guild for the new blacksmith shop addition at the folk school. It was an amazing time and even though we donated the Land Ark wood finish, we wanted to do more! If you want to view the slideshow at your own pace, here's the link to the web album. If you want to see even better coverage, view Keather's (the marketing director for the folk school) work on her slide show here or visit the folk school blog here. We'll post the final photos of the finished project this winter when the building is complete. I can't wait.

The beginnings of a cool Timber Framing Project in NC

Here's a little quickie video of the project we are helping with in North Carolina at the John C. Campbell Folk School with the Timber Framer's Guild . If you want to keep up with the latest on the project, click here. Plus see a picture of Aaron moving in the first timber to the new site! Of course, this new building will be dripping with Land Ark Wood Finish before the week is out!! (Which is why our shop will be closed this week - 6/9 through the12th)
