Can you REALLY learn how to timber frame from an online course?
For those who can make it to Maine, our in-person Purely Post-and-Beam class would be the best way to learn timber framing. But we understand that not everyone has the ability to drop everything for a week to come to our campus in Woolwich, Maine to do so. We fully believe this is the next-best thing and that YES, you can truly learn how to timber frame with the help of this online course!
We have worked hard to compile every last bit of content from our Purely Post-And-Beam course and put it in an easily digestible, video-by-video, online format. And not only that, but we've also tried to anticipate every question that you might ask as a student of our online course, since you don't have the luxury of asking an instructor during class.
Our recommendation is that you first go through the course content from beginning to end before trying your hand at timber framing (rather than watching a singular video and then immediately trying to copy what you just watched). Then, once you acquire some timber framing tools and lumber, continue to use the course as a reference guide, coming back to specific sections to review as you practice your skills and eventually cut and raise your own timber frame structure!
