Back in the timber –

Tom finishes a notch on a thirty-two foot Douglas Fir timber

There’s nothing like a few days at Trillium Dell Timberworks of Knoxville, Illinois. The company hosted a Compound Joinery workshop for the Timber Framers Guild and I was given the honor of videotaping the event. Over five days, I managed to learn something about roof trigonometry and how to calculate the necessary angles.

Fascinating stuff – best left up to to the professional timber framer. I’ll take my chances with something a little less complicated – like video codecs or Final Cut X.
