Webinar Summary (Recorded)
Timber framing is defined as the craft of building structures that are supported by exposed, heavy timbers. The connections are often traditional: pegged mortise and tenons, splines, keys, wedges, and simple bearing joinery. This presentation covers the past, present, and future of timber framing. It includes examples of timber-framed commercial and residential structures illustrating a wide variety of timbers and connections. The speaker celebrates thirty five years of experience as an educator and practitioner in the repair, analysis, design, and building of hundreds of striking heavy timber-supported structures.
