    Japanese Board Stretching

    Is that piece of wood you cut too short?

    Maybe this bit of joinery will help you out.

    oh, now they're just showing off. I was wondering about the little gap at the one end after they had it assembled.

    I wonder what the engineering specs on a joint like that is. Like what percent of the strength of the unjoined beam?

    Back whe I was a painter I was working in Georgetown staining some work at a home that once belonged to Lisbeth Taylor and the new owner was having a in-law sweet built like this. I did not get much work done watching the guy work , no nails or screws. He was American and studied many years in Japan.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    That is crazy. Not sure, but it may put the Amish to shame

    What I want to see is how they laid out and cut the joint. Way cool! And the little gap on the one end was for the disjointing wedge. Clever!

    Fantastic joint.

    Add wood glue

    I would use a double wedge in the middle joint

    WOW - I would bet that joint is every bit as strong as anywhere else on the beam.

    What a beautiful Joint

    Thanks for that. I always enjoy watching those craftsmen make and deploy that joinery. I con't find the one I had that showed the layout process but, this is a fun series:
