King-Post Trusses in a Richmond Cabin

King-Post Trusses in a Richmond Cabin

Two beautiful Rimu King post trusses were crafted from dry timbers provided by the clients.  These were installed in a guest cabin on the clients’ property to add warmth and character to a particularly attractive suite.  This truss design included an optional ‘through tenon’ at the bottom of the King-post passing right through the tie-beam. The trusses were finished with an oil/polyurethane mix giving them a glossy look.  Using a varnish or polyurethane is only an option with well dried timber.
