The Totem Maker Kit is a large construction set from the makers of the [insert kits here]. Designed to give the user all the tools they need to create all kinds of structures, frames and projects, this kit comes with all of the parts and tools you need to get started.

In the past I have been very fortunate to review a few different maker kits from Totem. The pre-built kits are amazing; and are very well put together for the task at hand.

In addition to these pre-built kits I was also given the opportunity to road test one of the general maker kits, packed with everything you'd need to craft your own designs from a huge number of beams, panels and all the fixings between the two.

New X4 board

Pros - cutting tools, most structures possible, simply to work with cms. Instruction book provides info on common structural joins.

Cons - lack of custom panels for mounting arduinos, Pis etc. mounting pate with board holes on that fits the beam's holes.

Things I've built:

Cluster frame

Extensions for Totem Mini Lab

miniature drawers for components.

MIDI button tester.

Fader rack.

All kinds
