To learn how to cut joints for timber framing, you need to purchase this set of plans.

The basics need to be understood and these three basic things are used in all timber frames, which are the mortise, the tenon and the brace.

I'll send your set out during regular business hours that the post office is open, Monday through Saturday, except holidays.

Unless you want a pdf copy by email. Then I can send it to you during regular business hours, upon payment.
