Eric Williamson has been the main design force behind Timberkits over the years. His combination of engineering skills and extremely fine craftsmanship is quite unique. He has constantly delighted his audience with a never ending fund of ideas and ingenuity.
His fascination has always been with the challenge of giving mechanical models natural movement and life. It is particularly entertaining watching him in the workshop performing the actions and finding their mechanical equivalent in a happy little mad world of his own. The design process is truly a back of an envelope journey littered with mugs of tea, sawdust, muttering and the odd euphoric shout of victory.A full account of Eric and his work can be found in Our Story.
