French gate making course = 29/30 March

Postby Billman » Thu Mar 13, 2014 8:02 pm

This may be of interest to some:

Stage gratuit "construction de barrières gatinaises" = free course but 15 euros to join the society, and bring your own lunch

Prochain stage à l'atelier de La Fortinière - Les 29 et 30 mars 2014 - Fabrication d'une barrière gâtinaise
Nous allons fendre du châtaignier pour la réalisation des différentes pièces composant la barrière : traverses, perche de contreventement et barreaux, le montant sera en chêne scié de long.

It's only about 30km from my house so I will probably go. Are you planning to go Billman?

Sadly, I will be unable to attend as I am not in France until the tool fair at Bièvres on 1st May - if you go maybe a report and some photos for those of us stuck in England...
