by Cecil A. Hewett

If you appreciate timber framed homes, you’ll also appreciate this book. It’s considered the seminal work on historic timber buildings and their construction -- particularly because of the extensive joinery illustrations that Cecil Hewett has incorporated into the text.

The book documents the structure of the world's greatest timber buildings and shows how the framer's craft has evolved over the past 1,000 years. Specific joints merit multiple explanations. Are you curious about scarf joints, for example? Go to town on the descriptions and illustrations of this joint and its functions.

This is an in-depth discussion of timber framing and the historical progression of techniques used in the field. Superbly illustrated throughout. 8" x 10".
