The Timber Framers Guild, based in Becket, Massachusetts, will build a park pavilion in Nacogdoches in March as part of an intensive workshop led by four master craftsmen. The Guild represents this age-old construction technique of building structures with joined timbers. Unlike modern carpentry, it does not rely on high-tech power tools to get the job done.
Nacogdoches timber framer Tim Chauvin said this hands-on workshop will attract students and apprentices from all over the country. For some, it’ll be a world away from their day job.
