Timber Framing & Timber Construction Books

This catalogue page has books about timber framing, timber frame joinery, and timber frame construction.
The nearly forgotten art of timber frame construction is again flourishing throughout North America. Timber framed homes are strong, comfortable and cost effective. This building construction method is highly evolved, very traditional, and lends itself to affordable and practical techniques for the contemporary owner-builder or for the professional.
Timber-framed buildings have a strong skeleton of large wooden structural members fastened to one another primarily with wood-on-wood joinery techniques. While a timber-framed home might look like a typical stud-framed house from the outside, the two building systems are actually quite different. By using this ancient building craft combined with contemporary building concepts, the builder can make the timber framed home a feasible alternative to the normal stud-frame house. The resulting structure is a home that is strong, stylish, comfortable and practical.
These books cover working with timber and wood working tools, timber framing, timber frame joinery and timber construction in building. They were chosen for builders, do-it-yourselfers, designers, architects, engineers, and contractors.
The following list of books were carefully selected for the do-it-yourself timber framers and woodworkers by our research staff. These books were selected because their text material is clearly written, easy to follow, and usually are accompanied with instructive photographs and detailed illustrations. And that if followed closely by the reader, the reader should be able to perform the work required to complete a successful project.
