Gold Medal Winner 2013 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Book Award
Silver Medal Winner 2013 IPPY Independent Publisher Book Award

In ADVANCED Timber Framing: Joinery, Design & Construction of Timber Frame Roof Systems, Chappell presents a comprehensive treatise on the history & construction of compound timber frame roof systems. Beginning with the history and elements of natural design, he unfolds the process of designing & building joined hip & valley timber frame roof systems from the design & theory through layout & execution.

Using geometry & math, mixed with harmonics & musical overtones, this is the most complete work ever on the art & design of compound timber frame joinery.
Chappell presents a complete and comprehensive geometric and mathematical system in this work. One that can be used to design virtually any conceivable arrangement of complex structural members that one may ever face.
