Looking to breakout into timber framing and build a few small projects to get started. Thanks to Brice for such a great avenue for information of this art to be shared. Looking forward to anything anyone can teach me. Currently building a dovetailed carpenter box for my timber framing tools(which I have few of) any suggestions on first and most important purchases?
