Timber Joints - A subject without end: TS2305

Edgar (Ted) Stubbersfield
Formal CPD
Duration: 00:59:05

With timber again being readily used both for architectural features externally, this talk provides a  platform of knowledge to assist with the specification of timber joints. Ted discusses the differences between old & new joint methods, the use of galvanised or stainless steel fasteners, and the correct use of nail plates and grips. Whether you are detailing a timber handrail or something more elaborate, good and proper timber joints could mean the difference in terms of longevity and maintenance costs.

As you will hear from this talk, Ted is a wealth of knowledge on the history and technology behind the successful use of timber in building.

                  Edgar (Ted) Stubbersfield grew up Gatton, Queensland, Australia.  Ted and his parents before him operated a sawmill, Gatton Sawmilling Company which specialised in high quality hardwoods.  This small country mill won many awards for the quality of its hardwood and its innovative products.  In 1997, Ted started his own business; Outdoor Structures Australia (OSA) with the aim of specialising in weather exposed timber structures such as boardwalks and bridges.  He undertook several formal research projects to allow him to understand and the special requirements of this very difficult application. 

                  Now in his semi-retirement, when not delivering CPD sessions, he works as a consultant advising mainly local government on how to maximise service life while minimising maintenance on their bridges and decks.  He is also writing down what he has learnt over a lifetime, so it need not be relearnt.  These new books explains good and bad practice in the area in which they deal and, very importantly, have design checklists so you don’t miss those areas that are likely to impact longevity.
