    Hello firends,

    In the summer 2012, I plan to build a wooden arch japanese bridge.

    22 feet long to cross my stream.

    The creek separates my land by 200 feet long. Around its banks to reach the other side of the creek was not practical.

    I did not find anything on the internet to help me. So I share my project with you.

    I am not at the point of building a arch bridge 太鼓橋 but have given it some thought as I am interested in Japanese joinery and Japanese woodworking.
    I found this picture of the wooden timbers, joinery, and framework in the 5th and 6th photo very helpful:

    I like how painting the frame black gives the illusion of it being much thinner as seen in the 4th picture of the finished bridge.
