Class Detail


Course Description

This course introduces easy to follow step-by-step geometric developments for layouts applicable to all crafts of the carpentry trade. Using the drafting standards learned in Stereotomy Drafting Basics, participants will learn how to develop parts of a circle, different styles of arches, polygons of any number of sides, and ellipses. Different methods will be shown for each where practical to match the tolerance requirements of the different crafts. Participants will layout and construct two scale foam core and paper models to reinforce the geometric layouts learned in this course; the first a groin vault including the sheathing development which covers the layouts required by an interior systems or residential framer, drywall hanger, mill-cabinet or finish carpenter. The second scale model is an ogee tower roof an octagonal plan including the hip bevels and sheathing development.
