Hello all, this is my first post and i hope you can help.
I'm building a porch and have a 8x2 ring beam to take the roof above.
I have 2 oak posts offset from each corner and would like to know the best way to join the ring beam at the corners. Obviously i want the strongest possible corner as it will be taking the rafter.
I was thinking of a mortice and tenon or dovetail joint and then braced inside.
What do you think.
