  • The basics of timber framing.
  • How to design for strength and beauty.

Review / Comments:

      The best place to start. I have bought probably 10 books on timber framing and ended up building my own 2000 sf timber frame barn. I went back to this book more than any other becasue it covers the basics so well.
      If you're looking to attempt a fairly straightforward project without any real complex joints or design, this is probably the only book you'll ever need - a great primer and a great basic reference.

      "Timber Frame Construction" provides a good basis of knowledge for the expeirenced builder intrested in learning post and beam joinery , from the history of the craft to tools and joints. I found the book a valuable source for my project.
