Yep...Best way of learning is teaching...hopefully after I get my little smokehouse done to where I can organize and use my tools...then I'll set up and timber frame another shed..probably a 10x 14
storage building...

Great Thread
I Have learned a lot.

My wife wants me to build a 2 storey play house for the inevitable grand kids and wants it to be a timber frame rustic little house. Foot print will be about 10 by 16 ish or what ever comes close.  It will be built by this German guy that has bit of a reputation for building things so it aint comin apart in this life time or the next, will support at least the weight of full grown cow and will simply change locations should a tornado strike. If any one has a plan or knows where i can get one please let me know.


If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

 I have done a few small timber frame structures, am self taught with the help of a few books, and I appreciate what has been written here.

 One thing I might add is that for repetitive pieces such as braces I make masonite templates that I hang from the shop rafters until such time as they come in handy again.

Jim has provided so much good information on this site that it is amazing! I think that we should start a petition to see if we can convince him to consolidate all his rules of thumbs, and other useful information, into one Word or PDF document, or possibly even a book. I would be willing to pay a lot of money to purchase a document that captures much of Jim's knowledge and words of wisdom!

The forum is great for individual topics, but it is not the most convenient for amassing a large collection of instructive information into one concise location.

Thanks for all your kind words.
What I need is for everyone to go to YouTube and subscribe to my videos. I need to have a 1000 subscribers in order to make money off them.
I want to do more videos, but I have to work to pay the bills. Getting paid for making videos about timber framing would be fun not work.
