I am building a timber-frame arbor from 6"x6" and 6"x8" juniper timbers using traditional techniques. I did a test-fit of one of the mortise & tenon joints for one of the braces and noticed that it made an interesting sound, so I grabbed my binaural setup and did some recording. Sound Professionals binaural mic on a fake head into Sony PCM-M10 recorder.

I give up on using wood blocks for leverage, and get my crowbar. I give it a ring at 0:13. In the spectrogram you can see its harmonic frequencies. I then begin using the crowbar and small blocks of wood to force the tenon out of the mortise. Several of the small block snap under the pressure.

At 1:57 I accidentally drop the crowbar onto the cement floor.

At 3:50 my phone event reminder goes off and I snicker at it.
