Once again we have a stellar video from Midori and Sticks and Stones Video.
In this clip we watch Eric (Master Timber Framer) preparing ‘dry white oak’ timbers for placement.
Also in the video Lou Fenninger describes how the big timbers are placed seamlessly during the construction.
Thanks again to Midori for the excellent video clips.

A local reporter took a walk through the site late last week in an attempt to decipher how the big timbers are prepared by master timber framer Eric.
The cuts are all pretty painstaking and feature some pretty specific measurements. You will note that the angles and the notches are all scored first with a boxcutter and then the cutouts are made and shaved accordingly.
Thanks for putting up with the improvised narrative. Eric left before our crew could get over to him for some comments.
We will be talking to Eric in our next video.

The footers are up and our timber framer Eric is working diligently preparing the big lumber for setup.
We have another video upcoming that will detail the grooves and notches that Eric has to carve out for each timber.
