NH Farm and Foresty show
« on: January 25, 2019, 02:30:48 PM »
On Friday February 1st and Saturday February 2nd, 2019 there is the annual NH farm and forest show:
 here is the link to the show  https://www.nhfarmandforestexpo.org/  
The regular group who does some timber framing demonstrations has bowed out this year. And Bob Spoerl has asked me and Ellen Gibson to do some demos. And talk about timber framing.

We will be there cutting some joints for a mailbox post.

If you'd like to stop by and say hi that would be great.
If you'd like to stay and while and help cut some joints or talk about timber framing that would also be nice.
Send me a pm if you wish.
Thanks
Jim Rogers
Whatever you do, have fun doing it!

Hey Jim, I plan on stopping by on Saturday. The list of exhibitors seems to have grown since that last one I went.
See you there

Will you have time to stay a while? or just passing through?

NH Farm and Forest expo story.
On February 1st and 2nd several Timber Framers Guild ambassadors got together at the New Hampshire Farm and Forest expo:


 

Left to right: Allan Peoples, Ellen Gibson, Jim Rogers and Bob Spoerl.
 
In order to do some joint demonstrations we decided we'd cut some timbers and do a simple mail box post.


 
The reason we chose this project is because this group of timbers is in every frame project, just different sizes:



While cutting the joints we have lots and lots of spectators and helpers.

Bob showed how to use Allan's boring machine:


 
And later on he showed a young man and his father how the joints went together:


 
We brought a shaving horse and made our own pegs. In doing the peg making demonstration a nice fellow stopped by and wanted to try doing it:


 
He liked doing it so much on Friday, that he came back on Saturday and helped us all day long.
During the show on Saturday, a couple of members of the NH FFA (Future Farmers of America) stopped by to see if there was anything we could donate to their silent auction.
We told them that we just happened to have a nice mailbox post to give them.
They returned at the end of the show and picked up the completed post:


 

We asked Jason (on far right) to please be in the picture as he made just about all the pegs for the project.
I hope that this helps them raise some money for their group.
Each one of us told the crowd about our upcoming conference in Manchester, NH. And several said they would come.
 
Ellen Gibson (not in the final photo) did several joints and they were very nicely done.


 

Our thanks go out to Taylor Mill at Ballard State Forest in Derry, NH for supplying most of the timbers. Jim Rogers Sawmill for the brace stock. Vintage tools NA for using some of the tools we needed.
It was a great time and we hope to do it again next year.
