Whatever you do, have fun doing it!

http://tfwiki.org/

It was hacked and lain waste to some while ago...

And I guess I don't understand why the idiots even wasted their time, as if somebody is going to click on their porn links when they momentarily misdirect your attention from an underused wiki ???

Hi,

I spent a good part of yesterday trying to decypher a Worcestershire timber frame cut list from 1605. This contained a complete list of all the scantlings needed to construct a 3 bay timber-frame. Some of the terms used initially got me confused.

For example the term "laces" was used instead of "braces" which at first sight doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. However I then realised that we still use this French term today in the form "sou-laces" which equates nicely to "under-braces".

Another term that I got stuck at was "galliframe". This one does not appear to have a present day equivalent but might be the olde English way of saying "gallows frame" which thus would most likely equate to a "queen post and collar" assembly.

I have now been challenged to produce a 3D model of the frame that could be constructed using this timber list.

Regards

Ken Hume


Looking back to see the way ahead !

Ken, I wonder that galliframe might have a relation to a style of boat building.

Ken, I just checked a Shakespeare online concordance and gallows and galley are inline with modern English, in a standard non-dialect sense.

So who might be the greatist carpenter?

click link for the answer

Edit the link failed. From Hamlit "The gallows-maker; for that frame outlives a thousand
tenants."

Hi Roger,

That's a very scary thought and I thank goodness that we have now stopped this barbaric practice here in the UK. I am old enough to remember criminals (and innocents) being sent for "the drop".

Hi,

One of the best peg making dies that I have seen employed by traditional carpenters was an industrial 150lb weld neck flange where the weld neck bevel (where it is usually welded to a pipe) was brought to a sharp edge by turning in a lathe. The peg was then driven through the flange so that the sharpened edge of weld neck cleaned off any oversize bits.

Regards

*gasp* this thread has become spam land!

What is the current state of the guild wiki? I couldn't help but notice that it is currently offline. Is it to be restored, or is it gone? Such a thing would certainly be useful.

I notice too that the disadvantages section of the Wikipedia article on timber framing is strange, with some odd complaints.
It seems to refer mostly to the German tradition (Fachwerhäuser), but it appears to be written by someone who doesn't really like it that much. Interestingly I checked the German Wikipedia article on Timber Framing, and it has no such list of disadvantages. In fact it speaks highly of the practice in Germany, the clever adaptations to bring old buildings and methods up to modern standards, and speaks well of its survival into the future and practical use as a viable method in the future.
