Drawbored Mortise and Tenon Tutorial

01-26-2019 03:38 PM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

Drawboring has been used in timber frame construction and traditional woodworking since the earliest wooden buildings were built. It is a method of tightening up the mortise and tenon joint and preventing loosening over time. It generally will outlast a glue joint as well. I did a two video tutorial on how I drawbore and will link to it below. Pictured above is my Timber frame sawhorses which were built of green timber and draw bored about 3+ years ago. No glue and no loosening has occurr...

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #8: Seeing the difference

07-17-2018 03:47 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

This last weekend I was able to put a solid 4 hours into the project and it is kind of nice to be able to actually see a noticeable difference. I removed the entire lover level of siding on the back side of the barn. I started slow trying to salvage what I could and damn is that frustrating. I have no idea how those guys on TV make it look so easy. I am trying to salvage enough of the good siding from the exterior to line my wood shop with then all is said and done. Yet it is a monumental tas...

Building a Goat Barn #13: Purlin Madness

08-15-2014 03:30 PM by David Bareford | 3 comments »

After the rafters were raised and secured last Saturday, we moved on to attaching the purlins. These are the radial pieces between the rafters that will hold up the roofing material. In our case, these are fashioned from alder branches or saplings, with the bark left on, nailed to the rafters with about a 4-inch spaced between them so that there is room for the purlins on the adjacent sides to attach.

Building a Goat Barn #12: Barn Raising Day!

08-12-2014 03:45 PM by David Bareford | 4 comments »

Well, the long-awaited barn raising day finally arrived this past Saturday, and my family in the area arrived to help. Wrestling eight 14-foot rafters was definitely a portion of the barn build that I could not accomplish alone. Of course, like any good barn raising, the family brought food, we grilled out, and we made a day of it. The first order of business was to explain to my “crew” what we would be doing. The barn’s roof is supported by reciprocal frame rafters, a te...

Scrub Plane Camber Calculator

11-21-2010 04:07 PM by TheGravedigger | 2 comments »

After my recent Little Good Pieces post, “Scrub Plane on the Cheap”, I received a comment by Swirt from Timber Frame Tools. It had some great info, and I’d like to repost a portion of it here for those that don’t read my blog or its comments: “Good article Robert. I’ve been using a No5 as a scrub for a long time and it works well. To get the most out of any given scrub, the amount of curve can be optimized without too much trouble. The recommendation of 3″ r...
