This article is first in a series of six to discuss and illustrate the joints in American Traditional timber-framed buildings of the few interesting regional deviations. The series will not describe the cutting process (that is best left to the “how to” books), but it will occasionally mention whether a joint is simple to fashion or labor intensive. Structural merits will be discussed only in general terms. Most of the research underlying the articles has been done in the heavily timbre-framed northeastern United States, but the findings are applicable to a much wider area. This series was developed under a grant from the National Park Services and the National Center for Preservation Technology and training.
The article appeared in Timber Framing: Journal of the Timber Framers Guild: No. 55, March, 2000.
