About this event

This session 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. Some points on design and engineering along with the need for clear drawings and method statements will also be discussed. The morning will provide specifiers, homeowners and craftsmen with plenty of ideas for the effective repair of historic carpentry.
