Interesting join…like a double rabbetted half lap. It looks like it would hold some weight, assuming that is just 2 beams joined…Is that a check running parallel on the left side of the Pic? Or is that 4 boards instead of 2? Hard to tell in the Pic.

Amazing what ingenuity was used when nails, screws and hardware we take for granted was not easily available….

Thank you for another excellent post…

Ah, a haiku day!
I didn’t know you did this,
very nice indeed!

Greetings to all….;

—-reggiek; To answer your question, the line you see on the left side is a ‘check’. Not to be concerned about checks like this in timber framing (after all the wood beam shown here is 5”x8”), while the wood being used here is hemlock….and although hemlock does quiet often check, it is still one of the most ‘stable’ woods one can use.

—-Dick; ....not to be rude by not answering your question out-right here, but I guess you’ll just have to wait for my blog story on this joint.

....and to all others herin, I do in-deed….thank you for taking the time to look and//or comment.

GODSPEED,
Frank
