Quizzical Pursuit
—The Architecture Puzzler

Created by Dave Guadagni

Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
Architecture Puzzler #86

Question

Fishmouths and fisheyes are problems that occur in different building components. Where would you expect to find each one?

Answer

Fishmouths are puckers that appear on edges of felt plies of built-up roofing not laid flat. Fisheyes are pinholes that occur in finishes when a wood pore remains completely open or when bubbles rise during the finishing process.
 


 

Okay, got it? Now try this week's Puzzler:
