Hi There.  I am after some help understanding how this join goes together.   If anyone has some joinery details that would be helpful.  Any assistance with this would be appreciated.  Cheers.

I'll assume that you captured that picture off an internet site. I'd say you may have to contact the host to see if they would share those details.

Most likely the two scissor rafter by pass the king post with a half lap cut away.
