Wood Design and Detailing Reference

Wood Design and Detailing Reference

(OP)
Can someone please recommend a good resource for designing and detailing wood structures? I've got NDS and I'm pretty comfortable with the analysis of wood members, but is there a go to book that people like for designing Gambrel roofs, connections, etc? Hopefully something with a mix of solid examples and details.

Yup, was just looking at it. Seems like what I might be looking for. The reviews make it sound like it covers sawn lumber and glulams, anyone have experience with the previous editions?

FYI, I have the first, second, and third editions.

I guess I need to get the new edition too! :)

Haha yup, I just ordered, looks like it will be a nice reference to have around and it has a reasonable price.

I do not know where you are, but here on the West Coast, I use the "Douglas-Fir Use Book" and "Western Woods Use Book" a lot too.
