Northwest Timber Frames

There are basically two ways to have your timberframe fabricated. At Northwest Timber Frames we pride ourselves in our ability to hand cut your entire frame.With a hand cut frame, we choose each timber for its location in the project and adjust the layout to showcase the timber and minimize any imperfections. We use our years of experience to fabricate all the joinery to be used in your project. Square and scribe rule are the most used types of layout that we use. Square rule is the ability to take any timber whether it is twisted or warped and make the joinery turn out precise by applying the principle of the perfect beam within. In scribe rule we actually scribe from one piece to another. This is often used when the customer wants round posts or live edge beams in their projects. By using hand tools and a few specialized timber framing machines we are able to produce your frame in 2-4 weeks depending on the size and complexity of the project.

For the more production oriented customer we have the ability to cut our frames using a state of the art CNC machine. In this process we take our 3-d model and using the latest technology we can have all parts cut to exact tolerances. Using this method gives us the flexibility to keep up with the most demanding schedules for the customer.
