The trades used to be passed between generations from fathers and mothers to their children with the intention of survival and necessity. We are amidst a cultural plethora of options for the aspiring able mind and body of today‚Äôs youth. We reminisce the hand-crafted world of the past, but welcome the technology of the future … but at what cost?

At Black Mountain Timber Frames we inspire young minds to test their wit and deft fingers using basic hand tools for the layout and cutting of the frames. We will offer new classes for kids and adults with respective skill levels in the near future.
