Richard,

I am certainly interested in the photo. But if it is too much trouble, I understand. What is the name of the booklet it is in?

Hi everyone looking in:

Well I have scanned, resized and saved the hewing picture we discussed above, into my photobucket album but I am unable to export it into this thread for everyone to see.

If anyone out there can coach me on the proceedure to move the image to this submit box I would appreciate it.

NH

NH,

On photobucket, click on the words "IMG Code" that appear below the image. That automatically copies the img code to your clipboard. then open a reply to this thread and right click your mouse on the text box and hit "paste". that should insert a long string of gibberish into the reply box and when you preview it or post it, it will turn into the picture. that is what i did here.

thanks for taking the time

Here is a picture of yours truly hewing, at Upper Canada Village.

Hello everyone, here is a example of a timberframe joint failure, one that I run across a number of years ago.

Any idea what the specific cause was?

Those pegs look like they might be "too close" to the post face? Did the other end pull out also?

Here is an example of dovetailing timber work that was necessary during the reconstruction of the fort at Upper Canada Village during the 90's. The timbers were Northern White Pine and were 12" square, with hewn faces.

First off --thanks Gabel for the directions reference the uploading of the images from Photobucket, it worked great, and I am a little smarter now I printed out the directions and have them hanging right by my side on the filing cabinet.

Jim:

A few years ago now when I helped host the TTRAG conference here in Morrisburg,I was examining an old collection of timberframe structures to obtain interesting construction details to fill in my lecture that I was asked to deliver.

This photo is of a 3 bay driveshed built about 186o. The age I derived from the saw marks, and type of nails used in its construction.

It emphasizes the pressure exerted on the tie joint, and a joint failure happening. The problem seems to be not in the placement of the wood pins from the face of the joint, but rather the height from the tie beam to the upper main plate. The building would have collapsed years ago but one of the previous owners had taken the initiative to stretch cable in a couple of places from one side of the building at the upper plate level to the other side. Unfortunately not enough support was given at this point.

I am very careful in my remarks to say that all the old time timberframers made no mistakes because they certainly did, and this is one of the classic examples of trying to obtain additional headroom in the upper part of a driveshed by raising the height of the upper plate above the tie beam.

Hope you enjoy

NH
