Shingles make an excellent insulation, they let your roof breathe, and they are very durable. This aesthetic and adaptable building material is currently enjoying a renaissance in contemporary architecture.
We will split individual shingles from a block of fine-pored, coniferous wood along the medullary rays, working in the traditional manner and with traditional tools such as the splitting froe and mallet. Afterwards, the shingles will be dressed or planed on the shaving horse with a drawknife. The natural coarseness of hand-split shingles ensures ventilation for the entire roof area. We will explain and practice shingling on a sample roof. The same splitting technique is used for making wall shingles
