Japanese woodworker Kinohaguruma makes some of the the coolest works of wooded engineering I have ever seen.

Here’s another wooden marvel, a crane that rotates 360 degrees, has an articulating arm with a claw!

His works of engineering art aren’t limited to just earth movers, here’s a wooden wood pecker that’s spring wound:
