My research lies within the area of timber-framed constructions. As a carpenter I am interested in the working procedures involved in the practical building situation, and I focus on the part of the building process, situated between the idea of a construction and the cutting of the joinery. In this study it is called the ‘scribing’ process. This construction is a case study in my practice-led research, where it has been possible to apply working procedures in practical craft laborations. The aim of the study has been to test and compare different methods and solutions in the same construction, and to identify and analyse different parts of the building process that have an influence on the scribing process. It has been a way to take in the knowledge I have learned and found in different contexts, to improve my own skill level and to support the results of my research. The leading questions throughout the study have been: • Which parts of the building process have a direct influence on the scribing procedures? • Which principles form the basis of the scribing of timbers, when focusing on what is happening in the practical situation? • Which tools, skills and theoretical knowledge are necessary to be able to scribe a timber-framed construction?
