Historic American Timber Joinery: A Graphic Guide
by Jack Sobon
Revised edition, 2014, perfect bound, 67 pages including numerous drawings and photographs.
This illustrated catalog discusses the joinery in American traditional timber-framed buildings of the past, showing common examples with variations as well as interesting regional deviations. It was written and drawn by architect and timber framer Jack Sobon under a grant from the National Park Service and the National Center for Preservation Technology, and it appeared previously in a series of six articles in the Guild's quarterly journal, TIMBER FRAMING. Guild Publications Director Ken Rower has here assembled the articles into a compendium that includes a bibliography and index to joints and useful terms.
