This glossary first appeared in TIMBER FRAMING 68, June 2003. Copyright 2003 The Timber Framers Guild.
As a suggestion from a FF member, we, Jeff and I got permission to post a link to a pdf file of the Glossary of terms.
Here is the link:Glossary of Timber Framing Terms
Many thanks go to all who contributed to this Glossary, and special thanks go to Kenneth Rower
, the editor of the magazine.
I hope you find this useful in understanding timber framing.
