Compound – made Real

This is the outcome of the previous post. 

Laser cut roof kernel, 12:12 and 9:12 regular plan. 1/2 scale (the notches that hold it together were 1″ long before I shrunk it down). 1/8″ thick veneered walnut, cherry and maple. 


I need to make a valley next. And maybe one out of clear acrylic with the development lines engraved on the faces… this takes me back to my Heartwood Compound Joinery / Roof class. 



Construction Details

New project taken from start to finish in SketchUp and LayOut. Construction details were a pleasure to model and annotate – and I’ve gotten comments that this has been an easy (and simple) set of drawings to work with and understand. I had the pleasure of working with the esteemed Fire Tower Engineered Timber on this project.
