Build a Timber-Frame Shed

What could be better? Learn the basics of timber-framing and get an outbuilding in the process.

This timber-framing primer covers the construction of a 12-ft. by 16-ft. frame, with step-by-step photos covering the cutting of mortises and tenons and the assembly of all the pieces into a standing structure. An exploded drawing identifies all the frame parts, and another series of drawings covers the more complex joints in the frame.
