WOW!! That is amazing. I’ve never seen anything like that before. I couldn’t understand why the joint wasn’t square and they didn’t seem to mind. Now I know. That’s great, thanks for sharing it.

Thanks for the post Joe, I’ve been studying Sashimono for awhile now, fascinating stuff. I might even attempt it one day when I’ve lost all sense of reality :-)

Like a scarf joint with a rabbet so that a floating tenon can join it together. The added fingers are a nice touch. I think Terri Noll describes the joint in his book.

I really liked this one so I incorporated the look into beams in my house. Mine are just 1x wraps around engineered lumber to simulate the look. I used this wherever I had long runs and couldn’t get lumber long enough.

Thanks for the post Joe. In 68 I was fortunate enough to spend time on Okinawa in the Ryuku Islands, now part of Japan and got to see the joinery that went into the construction of a Taoist temple. really amazing ! The Japanese are world champs in the art of wood joinery, hands down.

They make some amazing joinery. Dutchy, I used similar joinery to tie my main rafters.

I am not just saying this because I live in Oregon, but “Man, I really like that joint!”
I think I am going to have to try that one. ;)
Have a great day
