About the Builder


Timber Framer's Guild

  Ward's travels took him around the world and he settled in Japan for 5 years and studied residential and garden architecture. It was there that he discovered an interest in woodworking and carpentry and where his aesthetic taste was developed.

While pursing studies in Zen he lived in a small monastery in Kyoto and was trained by monks in basic carpentry and temple maintenance.

He has continued to study design and construction of traditional Japanese structures here in Seattle.

Here are some pictures from the Summer '06 Guild classes where we used traditional Japanese tools, design, and wood joinery. Most commercial jobs are done on a deadline in the most economical manner. It is a pleasure to be able to take all the time needed and work in a craftsmanly manner.
