Timberkits
Timberkits are solid pieces of wood not just bits of ply.

 With Timberkits you can take the first steps in discovering a world in which you can actually make things work for you. Amaze your friends! - no special knowledge or skills needed - just a little patience in following the drawings and not minding a dab of glue here and there. After you have made the model you can paint and varnish it and then try a more difficult one!

Making a Timberkit is to step into the whole world of Automata.  Wonderful moving models and scenes.  It is an art form in which you can appreciate the magic of mechanical action and a fascinating education for children and adults of all ages. In these safety conscious electronic times most of the mechanisms we are dependent on are well hidden so we never get to see how things work. 

Take a look at the building blocks of our  mechanical world.  Assemble the wooden cams, push rods, levers and cranks and understand what makes it all tick.
