Weaving Shingle Corners
Senior editor Andy Engel shows how to interlace shingles around a corner to create a classic New England look.
Woven corners—corners where the shingle edges lap each other—take a little more time and knowledge to complete than simply butting the shingles into corner boards. But the finished look is awesome, and from a carpenter’s perspective, there’s not much that’s more soul-satisfying than taking a block plane to cedar. Watch this quick video for pro tips to getting woven corners right.
