In the workshop at Castle Ring we spend 50% of the time measuring stuff and the other 50% of the time re measuring stuff to make sure it’s right. Building a beautiful oak frame that doesn’t fit would be funny for a nano second and catastrophic for a very long time, not to mention costly.
Finding the right set of measuring devices is therefore critical, and having as many as possible to hand, essential for the mental wellbeing of the stressed out timber framer.
As you can see, Jake and I have embarked on a Tolkeinesque quest to collect as many different tapes and rulers with which to clutter up the workbench. They all have different qualities – weight, colour, length, ergonomic design (whatever that is), imperial, metric, magnetic etc
If anyone else out there suffers from a similar affliction, you’re not alone!
If you're considering an oak framed building (or larch, or douglas fir), let's talk. We'll gladly put together an outline quote (completely free, with no strings attached). And we need very little information from you to do so.
Equally, we're always here, at the end of the phone, to talk through your ideas.
