Advanced Timber Framing - Gardening
by Steve Chappell

Written by a leading authority on the craft, this book offers an in-depth study of the design and construction of compound timber-frame roofs. It begins with a broad examination of design, illustrating how art, geometry and nature have influenced architecture from cultures around the world. It then explores the history of roof framing through diverse examples ranging from 11th-century Norwegian stave churches and medieval English hammer-beam roofs to Chinese pagoda architecture.

The second part of the book delves into the details of geometry and joinery, explaining how to lay out and cut joints for complex roof systems, including those with unequal pitches. He includes the necessary calculations and demonstrates how to execute the complex cuts and joinery through detailed step-by-step photos and diagrams. An essential reference for anyone involved in timber-frame construction.

Hardcover, 8-1/2" x 11", 348 pages, 2012.
