The Mesmerizing Machines Made From Wood by Kazuaki Harada

With just a simple press of a button or the crank of a handle, these amazing machines made out of wood by Japanese woodworker and designer Kazuaki Harada bloom to life, with objects that bounce and dance over a tiny platform like live creatures. This guy is a creative designer of mechanical creations shaped from wood, both big and tiny, from small single-crank parts to huge labyrinthine playscapes in display rooms and museums. The beauty in lots of his projects is gained from its simplicity, but recently he’s building progressively more complicated constructions like a dot matrix printer and longer sequences akin to a Rube Goldberg machine.

Harada shows his current work on Instagram and you can explore almost a decade of his finished products on his YouTube channel.
