DIY Wooden Gear Board


This board is great for children of all ages – by placing the gears in different positions they will learn about ratios and sizes and how to make machines work. When placed correctly, all five gears will spin!


This fun DIY kit comes with 5 laser-cut wooden pieces that can be colored with markers or paint (not included). You can decorate the gears on both sides although only one side has engravings. Experiment and see what patterns you can create.


  • 1 large gear (approximately 5.25″)
  • 2 Medium sized gears (approximately 2.7″)
  • 2 Small gears (approximately 2″)

All parts are laser-cut on 1/8″ birch plywood.


Finished board measures approximately 7⅞” x 7⅞” x ¼”.
