Timber framing is the craft of building with posts and beams, joists and rafters, all connected by wooden joinery. This carpentry tradition goes back well over a thousand years in Europe, and longer yet in Asia. While in many parts of the world, timber frame carpentry traditions are alive and well, in America it has experienced a resurgence after being neglected for light stick framing. With the revival of interest in the craft in our country has come an openness to experimentation and exploration of world carpentry traditions. Timber framing in America today is an exciting blend of old and new, West and East. Our class project will be to cut and raise a small timber frame. Students will learn how to draw out joinery on timbers using the traditional Square Rule layout system; cut mortise and tenon joints using hand tools; and assemble and raise the frame. We will divide our course schedule between the daytime hands-on learning of woodworking skills as we cut our frame, and the evening sessions, where we will view slides and discuss a variety of topics relating to timber frame design and construction.

In 1996, It was owner, Greg Sickler’s, mission to start a timber frame shop that was wholly committed to preserving the craft he had spent over a decade mastering. Over twenty years later, Greg and his son Kayle are continuing to build upon the original Settlement Post & Beam ideals. Every timber frame that leaves the shop is still hand cut with chisels and a rawhide mallet and our commitment to sustainability means all timbers are sourced from sustainable forests. As a small family business we take on a select number of projects per year to ensure we can give each structure the time and attention to detail it deserves. After all, we are in the business of handcrafting authentic, warm and natural spaces for our clients; we owe it to them to do it as perfect as possible.
Sturdy, Functional & Efficient
Here at Settlement Post & Beam we have carefully cultivated a medley of techniques, old and new, in order to provide our clients with the best offering of both traditional craftsmanship and modern day efficiency.
In our work, we go back to the essence of great architecture: quality materials, impeccable craftsmanship and timeless design. Our belief is a craftsman’s work should be a reflection of their respect for all these elements.
We have found, when this formula is followed, we can provide our clients with the best possible product while staying true to our core beliefs as stewards of timber framing.

Nearly three decades ago we started a small timber frame company. Today, along with our sister company Pioneer Millworks, we employ over 100 designers, timberwrights, engineers, craftspeople, artisans, and community members.
Together, we design and build some of the most lyrical and efficient timber frames in the industry, using reclaimed timbers, environmentally responsible practices, and state-of-the-art technology and software. Unlike many companies, we raise our own frames. The same people that cut joinery on a frame also raise it, as were adamant that the intimate knowledge required to produce quality work should accompany the project to the site.
Our clients hail from all over North America (and sometimes beyond). We build these relationships from our shops in New York and Oregon, along with a handful of trusted partners in the US and Canada. Our clients’ dreams, wants, and needs are as diverse as their locations. Some folks are architects, builders, and homeowners creating magnificent lodges in the mountains while others are young couples who want a modest home. Their common thread is love of fine wood, elegant design, and quality craft.
