A 3 Way joint - 三方差し

No nail architectural structures


You need vertical and horizontal members to build structures - columns and beams. Learning from our ancestors, we can do so with timber, without the use of nails. The joint of the timber column and beams are crafted by hand, just the way our ancestors have taught us to do so sustainably. It is a sustainable approach to building because they can be recycled as they are crafted to interlock and come apart. This is an example of 5 members coming together to form this 3 Way Joint.
