Elements of Craft: Timbers in the North


Northeastern Minnesota has been an epicenter of logging for generations, thanks to the lush forests that coat the region. And now, the heritage of those who first settled along the North Shore returns to the area through traditional craft.

In this edition of Elements, we take a look at the regional timbers that are harvested from the woods and used for building traditional homes and structures through North House Folk School, and how differing landscape and time changed how they were used.
