 Fabrication

Our fabrication can be done by one of two methods. The first method is by experienced carpenters and fabricators that have been working in this field for decades using a series of specialized powered hand tools. The second method of fabrication is done by the latest in-automated technology using computerized numerical cutting (CNC) machinery, which communicates directly with our 3D drawing software…

The Hundegger is one such machine that is capable of detailing complex geometry using a series of cutting, boring and machining tools along a conveyor belt system with two positioning wagons to accurately place the member on the cutting surface. From complex cuts to dovetail joints, there is not much this remarkable machine can’t do. It has a precision of up to 1/200 of an inch (0.13mm) making it incredibly accurate and fast.
