The OWT Rafter Seam Ironwood is a specialty connector that is the first of its kind. Although it is useful for many types of connections one of the most common is to join rafters for curved top pergolas. A curved top structure is a real conversation piece but conventional construction techniques have major limitations. Essentially the largest arc you can make is restricted by the length and width of the lumber you have access to. By adding joints to the rafter you can dramatically increase the arc of the entire rafter and improve the visual appeal. The OZCO Rafter Seam: a connector that expands the possibilities of your imagination. When it comes to attaching timbers, posts, joists and beams Ornamental Wood Ties (OWT) are the ultimate statement of style and strength.
