What Kind of Tools Are Needed When Timber Framing?

To complete the timber framing process, you will need a variety of tools. One of the most important tools to have is a mortising machine. This is a tool that punches a square hole in the edge of the timber so that the tenon can fit into it. You will also need a large saw to cut the timbers to the proper size. You may also need a chisel and a mallet so that you can finish the work on the mortise hole and make it completely smooth for the process of fitting the boards together.
