We had the opportunity to pre-fabricate a frame for Timber Frame Connection. This project was very special because the timber was all reclaimed Longleaf Heart Pine. We recieved an entire truckload of reclaimed timbers that had all been specified to a specific part of the new frame. A portion of the delivered timbers had to be planed and glued together to make pieces big enough to fabricate the large braces. The pictures below show the gluing process.
For each brace, a 6″x10″ and 6″x4″ timber were glued together. Resulting in one 6″x14″ timber.
The 6″x14″ hard pine timbers were 8′ long for the shorter braces, and 14′ long for the big braces.
Fabrication could begin once all timbers were planned and glued to the necessary sizes. The entire timber frame was pre-fabricated on our Hundegger Robot-Drive to ensure a precise and accurate fit for all timber connections. Some timbers could be resawn before the fabrication of the timber frame connections. All timbers got their final rough sawn look after all CNC work was complete. Below, pictures of a few finished components can be seen.
The project was then ready to be carefully packaged after CNC fabrication of all components was complete.
