The Japanese tenon (gooseneck tenon) is a special butt joint for the safe transmission of tensile forces. Since the tenon is rounded, the wood cannot splinter or crack under compression forces. The joint can be released easily, but is still stable and therefore an ideal means for timber construction.
The bevel lap joint is one of the most elaborate corner lap joints in timber construction.
The sloping surfaces in the scarf joint base create a force-fitted connection. These surfaces are often used in traditional framework construction for sole plates positioned over a corner and flush on the outside.
Automatically dimensioned component drawings are employed and machine data are generated for the connections during design.
