The Port Pavilion
Port Williams Community Park, 16′ x 24′
The Park project was started by two young mothers who needed a place to take their kids to play. In 2009 a beautiful playground was erected, as well as a hard court surface for hockey and basketball. The next phase was a shelter so the community could have BBQs, picnics, fundraisers and music jam sessions. The local park committee and Lions Club partnered with Wise Owl Joinery to build this wonderful structure in 2010.
This interesting timber frame features:
- 6″ x 12″ sweeping gunstock main posts
- Arched arbours on eaves, with Dutch tenons
- Principal scissor trusses with elegant King Posts
- 3’0″ cantilevered gable ends to protect from the elements
- Custom ornate metal boots
- Curved knee braces and wedged roof purlins
- Built in benches to be added
- Sansin Butternut stain for finish
- Contrasting tongue and groove roof with shingles
This pavilion is a great legacy to the community of Port Williams.
NOTE: A groove up one principal rafter and along the entire ridge was cut to accommodate electrical wire. Wise Owl Joinery drilled all the holes and cut pockets for light fixture boxes.
