A Training Resource for Traditional Timber Building


Woodnet have completed a partnership project with architects, carpenters and woodwork trainers to support carpentry vocational skills training.

Supported by the Leonardo Lifelong Learning Programme Woodnet participants visited several European countries to discover the differences, and many similarities in timber construction and wood decoration.

The background to this research is available at www.trawcoe.com  and this web portal also provides a link to a 3D models exploring many of the structures, ranging from a barn in Kent to a Latvian windmill, a Romanian church and a French farmhouse.
