Your suggestions for making use of this for timber framing
« on: April 03, 2021, 07:40:02 PM »
I have a piece of poplar.  I am working on a small timber frame truck port.  My theme is "use what I've got."

This is going to be a farm building; it does not have to meet any building codes.  It will be a fairly rustic structure.  Crooked wood is perfectly fine.

How would you use this piece of wood?  I am open to suggestions and options.  Bracing?

I am wondering how to use the part where the trunk branches.  Anybody have experience with this?  Should I just cut it in half and use the upper branching portions for something besides structural?

Thank you for your help.
