There are two recent books that focus on the remarkable timber framed ceiling of Saint David's Cathedral nave. This book is the author's response to the stimulus of those books. As an analysis and reconstruction of how the design of the ceiling might have evolved under the master carpenter's geometrical guidance, this book adds a further dimension to our understanding of this carpentry masterpiece.
