1* Phoebe Zhennan is a large species of tree up to 30 metres tall in the Lauraceae family. Zhennan was originally a Chinese word that related to its Chinese name 楠 (Nan). The species is under second-class national protection in China.
2* The mortise and tenon joint has been used for thousands of years by woodworkers around the world to join pieces of wood, mainly when the adjoining pieces connect at an angle of 90°. In its basic form it is both simple and strong. This is an ancient joint dating back 7,000 years. In traditional Chinese architecture, wood components, such as beams, brackets, roof frames and struts, were made to interlock with perfect fit, without using fasteners or glues, enabling the wood to expand and contract according to humidity. Archaeological evidence from Chinese sites shows that, by the end of the Neolithic, mortise-and-tenon joinery was employed in Chinese construction.
