The Craft of Timberframing
We've mastered the compound layout and cutting techniques that evolved from simple historic mortise and tenon to modern fasteners designed with engineered analysis. At Bensonwood we use off-site manufacturing to build all of our timberframes to ensure superior quality and craftsmanship. CNC timber milling machines rough-cut all joinery while a skilled timber framer then finishes each joint by hand. Our systems are continuously refined ensuring the best timber frame products available.

Our team of experienced building professionals are ready to help with your next project.
Our constant research and development efforts put Bensonwood at the leading edge of timber engineering, design, and analysis. With combined experience exceeding twenty-five years, our engineers are licensed to practice in many states and routinely work with architects nationwide. Able to specify steel and concrete systems to supplement the full and ever-expanding palette of wooden structural materials, like Glue Laminated Beams and Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels, our Engineering Team knows how to best implement effective, creative, and efficient solutions for your timber engineering projects.
The future of building materials
The demands of modern architecture have required a revolution in wood technology to compete with steel and concrete. Mass Timber products are made with kiln dried material, laminating smaller pieces of wood together to produce substantial stress rated building components ideal for any sized project. We have been designing and building projects with mass timber for over a decade, including cross-laminated timber projects across the country. In green building engineered timber is not only more robust and fire resistant, but the only material that is renewable making it the choice for sustainable construction projects of the future.
Automated Timber Processing
Unlimited processing possibilities are available with the Hundegger Robot Drive joinery machine, the most advanced timber robot available today. Our virtual fabrication team converts your fully engineered and developed drawings into the appropriate machine code for our fabrication equipment. This modeling process ensures the highest level of precision and quality control. The final products are coated with a finish if selected and wrapped, ready for shipment to the building site. The close integration between factory and construction site results in higher productivity, safety and performance.
We build homes that matter.
