Ridge Shinn & Hardwick Post & Beam


Local artisans from Hardwick Post & Beam will show you how they hand craft square beams from round trees. Traditional timber framers craft buildings with heavy timbers fitted together with mortises and tenon joinery. When the structure is raised, the joints are secured with sturdy wooden pegs. New England boasts timber framing buildings still in use after 300 years.
