You will need the following tools for this class:
- 1 1/2 inch chisel: you will need a chisel with at least a 5” blade. The Stanley "Contractor Grade" and Buck Brothers are less expensive options. Woodcraft and Sorby make good framing chisels, but make sure they measure exactly 1 1/2". The Barr chisel is an excellent tool and will be available at the North House School Store.
- Mallet: with a wood handled chisel you will want a 20 to 40 oz. mallet with wood, plastic or rawhide head. (Also available @ North House School Store)
- Ear and eye protection

More about Clark Bremer
Peter settled in Grand Marais after a transient career of log building, basket making, and teaching timber skills on public lands. His interest in mortise and tenon joinery was sparked by working on round log timber framed roof structures and later while building hiking bridges with hand tools and on-site materials. The crossover into timber framing was a natural. He has been designing and building frames and teaching timber framing at North House since 1998. Peter has had many roles at North House, but now focuses on timber framing coursework. His current interest is small buildings with interesting frame features and detailing with adze and drawknife. When he is not teaching or designing, he spends time with his family, grows and gathers local foods and skis and snowshoes.
