Mechanical model kits made of natural wood

Student project


Timberkits entered into a collaboration with students from the Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management at Strathclyde University. Their brief was to study the movement of feet in motion and to express that in a functioning mechanism. Their approach was very methodical and thorough with lots of practical and theoretical experimentation and the resulting model was fantastic. This lovely team of young people were presented with an award for the graphic presentation of their project which laid out their thought processes and practical techniques so clearly. A big congratulations to Sarah Glenny, Michael McPhillimy, Daniel Melville and Joanna Reid, it was a great pleasure to work with you.
