The timber framing trade lives and thrives through constant exchange between generations, the elder passing on knowledge to the younger, and communities sharing knowledge with each other. This transfer can be found in every tradition, trade and society.  Part of GFD Woodworking’s goal is to have at least one full time apprentice on the team.
