Upper King Post Strut to Rafter Detail

Upper Strut Timber Detail Isometric

While joining a strut from a king post or bottom chord is a simple timber frame joint to cut it is important to look at the connection details.  In this upper king post strut to rafter detail we use a 3/4″ housing, and because we are using white oak a 1 1/2″ tenon and two 1″ pegs  tie everything together.
