Post Hewing - Sawing & Framing
on: August 15, 2014, 19:55

This (2014) August Bank holiday (Sun & Mon) if you are in the Midlands then you might like to see Adam Lynch put on a demonstration of hewing, sawing and timber-framing at Sandwell Community Show, The Show Ground, Sandwell Valley Country Park, Salters Lane, West Bromwich B71 4BG.


Adam plans to make a porch cross frame from scratch using Larch, Oak and Scots pine logs. He will make shaped jowl posts, some small plates and the tie beam and plans to complete the frame over the holiday weekend.

Each of the timbers will be hewn with an axe, cross cut with a two man saw and if time permits he might also put on a demonstration of pit sawing using a recently acquired pit (whip) saw. A hand powered boring machine will be in action along with various other hand tools etc.

There will also be a static display of the gates that Adam's makes in his business which should all prove to be of interest to OWG members
