Former Students and Their Successes
"Best workshop I have attended, with some of the best instructors I have ever had throughout my schooling, including college".
"This workshop exceeded by goals and was more than I could have imagined. I'm coming away motivated, excited, and with a ton of woodworking skills I never knew I could learn so quickly".
"The instructors' experience in the industry and their large bag of 'tips
& tricks', plus their abilities to actually 'TEACH' and not just talk were
key to the amount I got out of the workshop-some of the best instruction
I've received so far!"
Dan, Anchorage, AK, 2008
"I considered other workshops, but finally opted to attend
the Rocky Mountain Workshops' Design Seminar. Not only did it far
exceed my learning expectations, but the food, facilities and staff
Al, architectural student, Colorado
"I'll be back! It's the best investment I've made in myself...
Jeff, contractor, Florida
"If all my weeks were like this one, I would be a very happy
Jake, college graduate, Ohio
"The scribing workshop made the joinery easy on
this truss. I don't know how we would have done it without the tips I
picked up in my week at Pingree."
Greg, Fort Collins, Colorado
"An incredibly worthwhile experience for anyone wanting to learn
more about timber framing and to get some real hands-on

"As with your other workshops, I was re-inspired to the timber
frame method and workshop energy and social camaraderie...I always
enjoy working with the diverse group of people who teach and attend
James, builder, Wyoming
first timber frame job was everything I didn't want: big, full of compound
joinery. There is absolutely no way I could have pulled it off without
the information I learned at Rocky Mountain Workshops' compound joinery
class. Thank you!"
Mark Miller, Trail Ridge Timber Frames Masonville, Colorado
"My experience with Rocky
Mountain Workshops has allowed me to take on greater and more enjoyable building challenges.
The Scribing and Compound Joinery workshops have given me new skills,tools,and tricks to
take on a much wider, more satisfying scope of work. The instructors, small class size,
and the site itself all contribute to a great learning environment. Thanks again, I look
forward to new workshops!"
Steve Meyer, Scribeline Timberworks Inc. Steamboat Springs, Colorado
"The workshops, once again, are proving to be a pivotal point
in my life's direction...thank you!"
Wayne, builder, Wisconsin
"I cannot express enough how much I appreciated the
instructors...they were so helpful and eager to make sure that we, the
students, understood ...plus the climate and setting were perfect!"
Gary, tree surgeon, Louisiana
"Thank you. I had a terrific workshop experience."
Steve, professional timber framer, Colorado
"The Design workshop was a very good exercise for anyone
wanting to build a custom home, or just to reinforce experience one
may already have, through instruction and advice from practicing
architects; well planned and plenty of time for one-on-one
Janeth, home owner, California
