Chelsea’s Wagon Wheel gets a Covered Timber Entry

October 26, 2021

The Wagon Wheel, the local watering hole down the road from our Vershire shop in Chelsea, hired us to design and build this awesome covered entry. The owner of the pub harvested his own pine and asked us to scribe the round logs. Our Vershire crew tackled the scribe task using freshly machined bubble scribes from our local talented machinist, Neil.

Raising day went off without a hitch. The timber entry frame was raised using a telehandler, operated by the client’s friend who joined us from out of town. After rafters were installed, we decked the roof with pine boards and put down Titanium underlayment. Aside from the scribe work, the crown jewel of this project is the client’s antique wagon wheel, fitted between the entry’s tie and rafters. A matching wheel was also turned into a chandelier that hangs in the dining room of the bar.
