    That was amazing Stu. I actually saw the gap on the back and thought you could take it back apart that way! With glue, an interesting way to make a beam that can be more easily transported to the site I would assume.

    I am still trying to figure out how they made the joint...specialty machine or by hand....

    I haven't had a change to search Stuart, but I assume somewhere there is a video showing them cut this joint?

    It is cool but is it just a non-structural splice joint or is it structural?

    Well I'm sorry I did not see that video, I'm not on here much, too busy working, 2015 will be the busiest year for me in a while, I have so much on the go I need to hire someone to sleep for me

    Not that joint exactly, but I think you get the idea....



    At about the 4:40 mark you can see him using a goose-neck dovetail slick, very cool, and the larger slick he uses after that, also very cool.

    Now he is shaving off paper think bits of softwood endgrain..... are your chisels that sharp...?

    Hand hewing a natural timber with an adze....



    There is some serious skill, plus hours of work to get that kind of muscle memory.
