  1. Hello, I am trying to find the name for the 1 1/2 birdsmouth type joint from the rafter to the tie beam.

    I find the Term birdsmouth lacking in this instance . I cannot find a term in my timber framing manuals.

    Thanks

    Man, I’m seeing this as a principle rafter to tie beam to post detail….is that not right? Would that work?
