1. What would be the best wood to use?
2. How green can I use them?
3. What would be the smallest diameter I could use to make a (standard?) truss? I am familiar with what the different truss styles look like. I am just not sure if there is a standard, or one better suited for building with roundwood.
4. What would be the best way to connect them? The type of joint, metal connectors?
I have about 8 acres that is all wooded, and could use some thinning. Which is why I was hoping to be able to find a way to use them, instead of having to buy pre-made trusses.
Thank you so much for your help! How do I find your amazon book list? Which of the timber framing books would you recommend that I start with?
Would any of the books you have in your list help to build something like this?
