THE INTELLIGENT OAK FRAME

INTELLIGENT OAK FRAME DESIGN & MANUFACTURE

THE INTELLIGENT OAK FRAME IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CUTTING-EDGE DESIGN TECHNOLOGY, PRECISION PROCESSING MACHINERY AND TRADITIONAL CARPENTRY SKILLS

 

At Oakwrights Country Buildings we use the phrase 'The intelligent oak frame' to refer to the combination of cutting edge design and technology used by our high precision CNC beam processing machinery and the use of traditional carpentry skills. It is the subtle fusion of technology, craft, design and proportion that gives Oakwrights Country Buildings oak frames their unique character.


Achieving this goal is not just about applying modern production techniques and equipment to a traditional craft, it is about the training of, and understanding of, the traditional design philosophy that makes a well-proportioned oak frame work. It is about how and where to apply appropriate technology to best advantage, and where to apply traditional carpentry skills to gain the best feel.


We start our team members on the shop floor in order to gain a solid grounding in these traditional skills.  Once these skills are mastered we move potential candidates forward to learn how to design oak frames or to master how our CNC machinery works to combine extreme precision with the traditional craft. By this 'fusion' we achieve the best looking oak frames possible whether it is an oak framed garage or an oak home as built by our parent company Oakwrights.

The Hundegger CNC machines used by us to prepare the oak beams for production of garages, stables and outbuildings are the world's most sophisticated heavy beam processing machines. The K2 machine does 80% of the cutting, leaving the craftsmen to do the more skilled elements: the fitting finishing, scribe work, decoration and embellishment. Given the speed and precision available to us, we are able to cut more complex and challenging jointing arrangements (for example those used in our patented panel system) which would not be economically viable for those simply using hand held power-tools.

We have not used the mechanisation just to cut costs, we use the technology available to make a better oak frame - The Intelligent Oak Frame. There are few (if any) oak framing companies who use only traditional hand-tools. When they say they make their frames by hand, what they are saying is they use hand held power-tools. This relatively crude method, has neither the honesty of the hand tool, nor the elegant sophistication of our integrated, intelligent system.

THATS INTELLIGENT!

 

The crow has long been recognised for its intelligence. Always watching and learning, the intelligent crow can and will mimic certain calls of other birds, animals, and even humans. But lately it is the crow's ability to make and to use tools that has been acquiring this bird a great deal of attention. Studies have shown that crows will examine different tool options given to them, and will not only choose a tool that is of the correct length or width for the assigned task, but they will also design a tool of the correct design and dimension if it is necessary for them to do so.
