Conceived and initiated by Timber Design Initiatives Ltd, this project aims to create the mobile Dowel Lamination machine/press, taking the idea through a full research, development, prototyping and testing process. Thereafter, commercial manufacture of robust machines will form the missing link in a chain that includes  mobile sawmills, kilns, planers and CNC cutting machines: a veritable mobile factory that can make an important , positive contribution to the sustainability of remote rural community life around the UK.
