This week I’m entering the wonderful world of timber framing. Timber framing exists in Japan as well as the west, but there are decided differences, but both share the same fundamental importance of joinery. For this first project, I make a useful product, with the most basic and important joint in timber framing: the mortise and tenon. Join me, and then give it a try yourself. You may discover a love for wood, or you may just end up with a saw horse for the garden!
