Timber Framers Guild Eastern Conference 2012

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

I’ll be teaching 2 sessions at the Timber Framers Guild Eastern Conference 2012 at the National Conference Center in Leesburg, VA. My full day workshop will focus on accurate modeling and advanced SketchUp techniques. Skills honed will be applicable to not only timber frame buildings – but furniture design and small building design. I follow up with a 90 minute session (demo and Q&A) introducing SketchUp + LayOut as a powerful presentation and CAD alternative.

As the conference wraps up I’ll be co-chairing a walk in design / plan review with Andrea Warchaizer from Springpoint Design. We will be working with digital files, paper, trace, sketches, and if the technology cooperates, putting the process up on the big screen as we charette.

There are quite a few good sessions this year, and I’m looking forward to connecting with friends and colleagues. For full program notes and to register, head on over the the TFG’s website.
