PURELY POST AND BEAM TOOL LIST

Greetings Future Timber Framers,

As this is a building class, we require students to have their own tools.  We recommend that you bring any of the following tools that you own or can borrow.  Be certain not to buy common hardware store variety chisels, mallets or stones - they will not help you create a quality joint.  If you don’t have tools or have access to them, you can purchase them at Shelter Tools (open Sunday evening, as well as during the week).  The store has a fine specialized selection and offers a 10% discount to students!

          Tool List:

  • Tool Bag (at tleast as long as you slick) or a bucket.
