To start off, we wanted to make a small timber mock up to ensure that we are on the same page with the carpenters in terms of construction techniques and design. It was also an opportunity for him to show us how traditional joints are being made.
Carpenters discussing over drawings that we have made. We wanted to ensure that the direction, angle, height and position of the mortise are right. We made drawings of each joint, elevations and plans of the entire design and printed them off on paper to show to the carpenters.
