Timber Framers Guild Regional Gathering

Gillis & Company are proud to host a Regional Gathering of the Timber Framers Guild in early 2015.  We’re partnering with the Nova Scotia Community College to introduce timber framing to new carpentry students and apprentices, as well as anyone interested in learning more about timber framing or those who want to share their passion for the industry.

The day-long meeting will take place Friday, January 30, at NSCC Kingstec campus (236 Belcher St,Kentville, NS).  We’re currently nailing down the presentations and presenters (please contact me if you have something you would like to add or share), and we’ll be posting a full schedule shortly.

Currently, we have presentations on joinery options and frame design, a hewing demonstration, layout and cutting, Google Sketchup and a review of historic timber buildings in Nova Scotia.  The day will also feature slide shows from the various presenters, highlighting their work and craftsmanship.

We welcome all who are interested in the craft, and ask that you contact me to register or if you have any questions.

Happy Holidays and I hope to see you in January!
