Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
That dove-tail joinery is sexy as all get out.
Class is in session. Can someone tell how those logs were fitted (assembled)?
Sure, they were laid one on top of the other. Ending at the topmost log. Not slid together- that would be impossible.I too had to stare at it a bit.
That'd be the only way short of witchcraft.Well done.
3d printing is my guess. (With the lines down the middle of the boards on the right and no lines on the boards left, it looks to be stacked and carved by a master. )
Duh! Sometimes the obvious eludes me.
That is a very elaborate dovetail notch.Dovetailing the corners is more time consuming but you save on material as you no longer need the alternating logs to extend beyond the building line.
I've done a bit of timber framing myself though not like this. Note that the heartwood is in every timber. Well done.
Sorry, no sale. Impressive to some to gaze at but I strongly suspect gaps in there somewhere, neither shape can continue through the joint. Straight up dovetailing would have been faster, easier and stronger.
I don't see any way that could possibly be fitted together either.
A modified dovetail shoulder...very time-consuming to gain the artistry. Flat shoulder dovetail corners are designed to shed water out of the joint, this won't but not a huge problem. Stacked log joints are flat and tight as well.
As a carpenter I am impressed
They're not slid through...They're laid upon each other.Look close you'll see each individuallog...the seems are booked to resemblea continuous and wider log.Still the same, it's master level wood work
As an OLD carpenter I can truthfully say that someone A) is a Master Craftsman and B) has way too much time on their hands. Beautiful work.
If you could see this in person from a couple different angles it would all make sense instantly.
Must've made a 3-D template to lay on his carving to check uniformity of fit. Nice work, these joints would keep it tight.
That is what I was thinking! Those joints are not going anywhere!
Why do half the commenters think this was computer generated (i.e. 3D printed,)?This is hand worked by a man used to working with his hands! Masterful!
