Ancient techniques will be used to build an addition to a woodland visitor centre in Lincolnshire.
The extension is being built using local materials
An education centre has already been opened in the 900-acre Chambers Farm Wood in Wragby as part of the £1m Lincolnshire Limewoods Project.
But the project is being enhanced by adding on a timber-framed shelter using ancient tools and techniques.
Forestry students from Riseholme College in Lincoln will carry out the work using wood from the area.
Students will learn about sustainable building techniques as the shelter is being built.
Steve Fox, senior lecturer in forestry at Riseholme College, said: "The students have helped select and fell oaks in the wood and will now work to fashion them into an eye-catching building that will blend in with the stunning natural surroundings."
Rob Ley, a professional woodworker from Skendleby, will use saws and adzes - a type of axe which dates from prehistoric times - to turn timbers into beams.
Limewoods project officer Liz Fleuty said: "When finished, the shelter will be an information point for visitors, showing how Chambers Farm Wood fits into the fascinating story of the Limewoods' past, present and future."
It is hoped the work will be completed by summer 2008.
