Dec 04, 2014 THE WOODEN WONDER We're proud of our wooden go-kart. Made from top quality ply the ATK is strong, durable and a very traditional in its construction, so much more tactile than its all-metal counterparts. Plywood is a wonderful material; its laminated construction make incredibly strong but, at the same time, interesting to look at. It also harks back to one of the best aeroplanes Britain has ever built. Nicknamed the "Wooden wonder" the De Havilland Mosquito was one of the fastest, most effective aeroplanes of WWII and was built entirely from plywood. How cool is that?!
