Our Timber Home Expertise
WHAT IS MORTISE AND TENON AND WHY IS IT USED IN TIMBER FRAMING?
Timber framing is an ancient building method that uses wooden joinery instead of metal brackets to connect the large posts and beams that form the frame of a structure. We use some of the strongest woodworking joints, including mortise and tenon, to frame our timber homes. The mortise is a cavity that is cut into a piece of wood. It is designed to secure a wooden tongue, otherwise referred to as the tenon, on the end of another wood piece that is then inserted into the mortise. When cut to precision, mortise and tenon joints ensure posts and beams are securely fastened to each other and create a durable frame that can stand for generations.
