Complex Roof Framing


Complex roof geometry is a challenge most framers face eventually. The skill of drawing complex shapes has been taught for centuries by the French, German, and Japanese carpentry traditions; it enables the carpenter to directly measure working angles and scale dimensions rather than calculating them. Learning developed drawing is one goal for this course and is key to understanding the geometry of complex roof intersections. The combination of drawing and basic roof math empowers the builder with a far wider variety of building shapes. The skills learned in this course are applicable to conventional framing as well as timber work, furniture with splayed legs, stairs, finish carpentry, and any project where angled planes and pieces meet at a combination of angles. Learn more here.
