Lodging knees update ….

August 18, 2017

Two knees ready for priming and painting. These knees have had the unsound timber removed and hardwood pieces doweled and glued in place. It would appear that the centre triangular timber is all that remains of the original knee. The laminate pieces have been glued in place to maintain the shape, size and strength of the knees.

This photo shows the laminate pieces being glued to the rest of the knee. This usually takes three lots of gluing to complete – each time “attaching” two laminates.

These 2 knees have more sound timber and will not need the curve laminate pieces to be glued to the original timber. Some timber has been replaced on the straight edges.
