Friday afternoon musings – ‘The Jowl Post’
Mortice and Tenon joint – this is the most common joint in timber framing.
In it’s crudest form, the mortice is a slot cut in one timber while the tenon is a tongue cut in another. The important bit is to design the joint well, so neither element weakens the other – it’s all about balance, harmony, zen and the art of timber framing! The assembled joint is held together with a hand made oak peg and will last for hundreds of years.
