THE INTELLIGENT OAK FRAME fom oakwrights

THE INTELLIGENT OAK FRAME

OAKWRIGHTS COMBINE THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY WITH TRADITIONAL OAK FRAMING METHODS.
WE CALL THIS THE 'INTELLIGENT OAK FRAME'

 

The intelligent oak frame springs from the interrelationship of cutting edge design technology and high precision CNC beam processing machinery, all linked into and reliant on, a base of traditional carpentry skills. It is the subtle fusion of technology, craft, design and proportion that gives Oakwrights 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

CUTTING EDGE OAK FRAME TECHNOLOGY

 

At Oakwrights we start our team members on the shop floor so they gain a solid grounding in the traditional oak frame 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. This dynamic combination of traditional craft skills, and cutting edge technology, creates The Intelligent Oak Frame giving our clients the well thought through, best designed and finest finished oak frame possible.

HERE AT OAKWRIGHTS WE HAVE DEVELOPED AN UNRIVALLED COMBINATION OF TRADITIONAL CRAFTS SKILLS AND CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY, CREATING WHAT WE CALL 'THE INTELLIGENT OAK FRAME. THIS MEANS THAT WHEN YOU COMMISSION OAKWRIGHTS TO BUILD YOUR HOME, YOU CAN RELAX IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST DESIGNED, FINEST FINISHED AND MOST PRECISE OAK FRAME POSSIBLE.

USING THE MOST SOPHISTICATED OAK FRAME MACHINERY

 

 The latest of the two Oakwrights Hundegger CNC machines, though installed in 2008, remains the world’s most sophisticated heavy beam processing machine. 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. And here lies the essence, Oakwrights 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.

NATURAL INTELLIGENCE

 

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. The crow is a very intelligent bird and should be appreciated for his natural wit and amazing ability to learn!
