Post Cruck Timber Frame Rear Long Wall Layout, Cutting & Assembly

The rear long wall timber frame differs from the front in that it is fitted with interrupted (discontinuous between main posts) sills and foot braces.

Image

Foot braces and wall studs are scribed and cut in a similar fashion to that explained for cruck 2.

Image

Mortices are made either using a hand cranked augur -

Image

- or a Millers falls boring machine.

Image

The use of hand driven boring tools makes for a pleasant and quiet environment that does not require the use of ear defenders and has the added benefit that carpenters can hold a pleasant conversation whilst working or listen to the birds singing.

Image

The timber-frame will be held together by driving tapered oak pegs through the mortice & tenon joints. These pegs are made by hand on a horse using a draw knife.

Image

A box full of finished taper draw pegs together with square pegs for skew fixing of cruck spurs.

Hello Ken,

This is wonderful work you are doing. Would love to chat sometime about other layout methods you know, your knowledge of these "lofting" methods, and anything else that pops into our heads.

Warm Regards,

jay
