Cardiff Dockside Crane

Although most of the Cardiff industrial scene has long since been swept away one splendid relic survives in place beside the former Bute East Dock. Having had some success with my version of a still extant Bristol Dock Crane I decided to attempt the Cardiff version. It’s taken longer than I expected, being a little more complex but it’s now ready for production and hopefully some sales.

Approximately 30cm tall, adjustable jib, working winch, rotary cabin with opening door and the whole thing rolls on boogie wheels. Easily assembled from 43 press-out pieces of superior 3mm laser-cut birch ply, a sustainable material.

I live in Bristol, UK. I make things out of cloth, plywood, paper and other things. Sometimes I make prints.
