Timber Frame is Finally Done!

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

I have said it before and I will keep on saying again... beautiful craftsmanship and an absolutely gorgeous building. I really love it and wish I had the patience to do that kind of post and beam construction. I saw one under construction on the way to Cecil's, it was somewhere off the 95 in Mass - right off I thought of this project and was wondering how it was going. Now we know. Simply gorgeous.

I like that old huge B&D 1/2" drill as well. Neat tool and lots of power. I like your clamps -- them will work nicely. The wooden mallet - is that an ECE mallet?


Thanks for all of the warm comments guys. Glad you like the building.

Rudi...yes that old B&D drill was my Gramp's. Great tool, and as you said..lots of power. You can really get hurt if you aren't holding on tightly. The mallet is European Beech and made in England by a company called Crown Hand Tools.

Thanks again everybody!

Wow, wow. That is fantastic. Good for you.

Where did the scarf end up??
Do you have pics of the inside.
Reminds me of a Sobon shed.
Thackery


Thanks Thackery. Indeed I used a plan from one of Sobon's books to design this shed...then just made a few modifications. The scarf ended up in the top plate of the porch....I'll attach a few pics. And yes, I'll atach a few pics of the inside. One pic is of the loft where I keep all of my hunting gear and clothes.

Hats off to your workmanship; you're a true craftsman!! You have constructed a fine looking, as well as durable, building. You should be proud.

Do you know how long veggies will keep down in your cellar?


Thanks Stanton. My wife and I are doing some reading and experimenting. The cellar isn't staying as cool as I'd like. I think I need to insulate the ceiling of the cellar (the floor of the sugar house) to keep it cooler. From what we've read we should be able to keep apples and vegetables into Feb., March, maybe April depending on what it is. Some apples don't keep well. Others keep great. Should be fun experimenting to see what keeps well and what doesn't.

You're a talented guy Blair, I hope to think of a reason to stop up your way and see it soon How are the deer moving around up there? Nice job.

Thanks Joe. Stop by any time you are coming through. Bring your shotgun if you want!

Deer season has been SLOW! I have no oaks or beech on the property. Also no agriculture. All I have are wild apples to hunt, and the apples all fell early this year back in late Sept. I am going to have a hard time filling the freezer this year.

How about out in Hadley?
