The Craftsman Timber Truss
The Craftsman Timber Truss combines beautiful features from both the Hammer Beam and the King Post Truss. Decorative metal strapping adds the special touch of the blacksmith’s craftsmanship to this truss design. This timber truss works well in a variety of spans and roof pitches and is one of the most popular designs. It raises the beam and thus leaves an open space much like an upside down ship hull.
