How you organise the frame with chisel marks is crucial to the job of putting the whole shooting match back together again on site.

Imagine the scene – it’s raining, no, snowing! You have one day to raise the frame; the crane driver is costing you £50 an hour; you have a team of 6 men chomping at the bit; and not forgetting the client who is expecting to film a smooth and professional outfit perform a beautifully choreographed “raising” as seen in the Harrison Ford movie ‘Witness’.

So, you had better be able to identify each and every one of the 400 timbers on site by it’s individual chisel marking and orientate it the correct way.
