FRAMING THE WHEELWRIGHT SHOP
AT JERUSALEM VILLAGE

Rhonda Deeg, Director of the Building Preservation and Restoration Program at Harford Community College, ([email protected]) found Glenn James of Craftwright, Inc. to teach a hands-on class in the over 2000 year old trade of timber framing. With students from 21 to 78 in age and members of the cosponsor, Preservation Trades Network, timber framers cut and erected a “ghost” frame across the road from Jerusalem Mill. The frame is a replica of the wheelwright’s shop which used to stand near the Mill. The original wheelwright shop was 28 x 25 feet, but the new one is 16 x 16 feet in case it has to be moved for an archeological dig.
