    Framebuilding class of sorts in SE PA.

    My wife, who is a bit more online paranoid than I am and Google's the family member's names once a month or so, ran across this. That's my first frame. Dreesens also helped me build frame number two, which I'm waiting to come back from paint.

    Anyway, if there's anyone in the audience who's looking for some help building their first frame, you should get in touch with Dreesens. He's in Schwenksville, PA, about 25 miles WNW of Philadelphia. Or, feel free to email me with your questions from the student perspective, and I'll be glad to help. He doesn't have a fancy shop with rows of mills, but he builds a damned fine frame, and he's a good teacher.

    How much does he charge for the classes/help? To build a frame fancy tools arent needed, they help tho.

    You'd have to contact him. I know what he charged me, but I'll leave the pricing up to him. Ultimately, my frame, with all materials, etc., cost me FAR less than a custom.
