Way Back

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

I found a few pics scanned from slides to CD of my formative timber frame years. The snap below is from a barn repair and conversion I collaborated on outside of Columbus, Ohio. The hewn oak swing beam is 12″ thick and 24″ tall at the center. The posts are gunstocked in the direction of the plates and there was an interlocking tie / plate / post joint to bring everything together.

Swing beam - typical of Bent 2 and 3. Hewn white oak.
