Stop Splayed Scarf Joint

All scarf joints serve the same purpose – to enable you to span a length greater than the size of your timbers. Any scarf joint effectively creates one long timber from two shorter ones. The stop splayed scarf joint gets its name from the long angled face where the two timbers meet, and the “stop” is the edge that is perpendicular to the length of the timber, which creates more surface tension to strengthen the joint.
