Cressing Temple Barns
This course is divided into two illustrated talks with the first session looking at what repair methods might be appropriate to heavy carpentry and the tools that a modern carpenter might use.
Modern and historic hand tools will be covered along with specialist power tools that have been designed with heavy carpentry in mind. The second session will look at case studies of timber frames that some may consider to have been beyond reasonable repair. The morning should provide specifiers, homeowners and craftsmen with plenty of ideas for the effective repair of historic carpentry.
