Hello everyone tonight

thanks for coming on board Timbeal and the comments on the point in question, and now I am going to ask another favour:

Could you or Dave explain to me your proceedure for cutting the diminished haunch angle, I suspect that you would do the braces first and then the matching angle on the post or beam, or visa versa.

When we were reconstructing the Barn at UCV we did the braces and then fitted the brace's feet to the sides of the post or beam what ever the case may be, until everything was square, it seemed to be quite a bit of extra work.

We were using 4 by 6" hewn white ash copying the size of the originals
