We employ various construction techniques with our oak frames, and complete builds, which all depend on a variety of factors, such as planning permission requirements, building regulations, and most importantly, our clients' wishes.
CarpentryAs the beams used tend to be on the large side, the tools required to machine it are large too. Largely unchanged for centuries, our carpenters use specialist framing chisels, slicks, froes, spokeshaves and drawknifes, alongside modern day electric tools such as chainmorticers, band saws and rip saws, all "oversized", to cope with the tasks they have to undertake.
The space required to make your frame also needs to be big. We work out of our work shop in the heart of the Forest of Dean, and space is not a problem!
