3. Hurdy-Gurdy Model — 3D Wooden Puzzle

The hurdy-gurdy is a string instrument that produces a sound resembling a bagpipe. The sound is produced by a hand-turned wheel rubbing against the strings, similar to a violin being bowed. The instrument’s history begins in Medieval Europe in the 15th century with the organistrum (a portable organ).

Based on the 15th-Century organistrum, this Hurdy-Gurdy model is an intricately-detailed, fully-functional mechanical version of this medieval instrument. The finished model looks remarkably akin to the original hurdy-gurdys, with a wonderfully medieval aesthetic.

The fun starts with the assembly—the excitement of watching your very own musical instrument come to life—then tuning, followed by hours of pleasure as you learn to play an instrument built by your own hands. The instrument’s six keys are spring-loaded with rubber bands and little cranks in the key box to ensure softer and more convenient play.

4. Counterweight Trebuchet — 3D Wooden Puzzle

According to legend, the counterweight trebuchet originated in the Middle East in the eleventh and twelfth centuries and was widely used in siege warfare in medieval Europe.

The counterweight rock thrower appeared in medieval siege warfare. The most prominent feature is that the lifting runner is located at the front of the body, so it is also called the front runner rock thrower.

This layout makes the rear slide of the fuselage clean and smooth, which is more conducive to stone projectile installation and projectile. The counterweight rock thrower uses the principle of leverage. There is a heavy object on one end and a stone bomb to be launched on the other end. Before launching, the end where the stone bomb is placed must be pulled down with a winch, and the other end with the heavy object is also rising at this time. Let go of the rope, let one end of the heavy object fall, and the stone projectile was thrown.

5. Amusement Park 3D Metal Puzzle — 3D Metal Puzzle

When I was a child, my biggest dream was to own a playground.

During the process of assembling metal puzzles, you could see a swing of stars shining under the street lights; the Ferris wheel of stars among the clouds was listening to wishes, and the merry-go-round was slowly turning. It seems that the music of the music box is heard, and there are jumping machines and rotating teacups waiting to be activated.

Compared to the woodwork, metal puzzles are better both in terms of aesthetics and the difficulty of the assembly experience, more suitable for advanced assemblers.
