LOGS GOING UP THE CONVEYOR TO THE SAW MILL

We buy our hemlock and pine timbers from local mills in Vermont and New Hampshire and our douglas fir timbers come from Oregon. In this picture, bark is being stripped from logs at a saw mill.

THE SAWS AT THE MILL

After their bark is stripped off, the raw logs are cut into square timbers.The Saws at the Mill After being cut, the saw mill bands the timber together, loads it onto a tractor trailer truck and then ships it to our shop.

THE LAYOUT

The timbers are brought into the shop laid out by hand using the CAD generated design drawings. Accuracy is assured by a triple checking process. We use traditional measuring tools for the layout, like a framing square, bevel squares, etc. It is the most exact way since every timber is unique.

Beam saws are used to cut the timbers to length, and to do angle cuts and compound cuts as shown here. Other hand tools used for cutting include japanese style pull saws, left handed worm saws, and a large band saw to cut curved beams.

DRILL PRESS

A hand held drill press is the tool used to bore the holes for pegs and bolts.

Smaller saws are used to do the finer cuts.

All timbers are finished on all sides, including in the pockets and on the ends, before leaving our shop.

For a truly authentic look, hand hewn timbers are hewn the old fashioned way - by hand.
