Topic tags/keywords: question

I have a few questions and a couple of drawings I would like some input on. Anyone care to take a look offline for me? The drawings were done by a good friend and want to keep them private for the time being.

Contact me thru my e-mail at Belg at optonline. net

I’ve customized and built a hall and parlor frame design and have had some coursework in timber design and engineering….. but I wouldn’t really claim to be a timber framer.

What kind of questions do you have?

Jim, I sent you an email thru your yacht site email as it was the only way to add the pictures that I knew of.
Vet, thank you so much for your kind offer to help, after I saw the bench that Jim was working on, it was almost a perfect match to my questions. This project is on a very small scale timber frame so its just more large joinery than anything else.
