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.
