MBK Site Map

Which I Don't Want You To Use!

What the hey?! It's simple - this is a large complex site and by far the best and easiest way to find exactly what you are after is...

The Search function! :-)  It works well and I even find myself using it sometimes.

Although the content here is well-structured, some topics are not so common and hence harder to find. But Search will get you straight there, no problem. If it exists on site, it will come up in the list of page links returned.

The Search box is near the top on nearly all pages of this site. Including this one.

Now, if you really would like to use the old sitemap (below), feel free. As of December 2017 the sitemap links themselves have not been updated. However, being a mature website, pages are now being added much more slowly than in earlier years. So there's plenty to be found below...



The Site Map...

This site map lists links for most visible pages that have been posted, under broad categories. The broad categories are in CAPITALS (like that), and sub-categories are just in bold type (like that...)

Note that the last broad category is called VISITOR-CONTRIBUTED. From there down, all the pages listed have been submitted by visitors to this site. I'm grateful to them all, and there's some good stuff in there if you look for it.

There are over one thousand pages on this site, although not all of them are listed below. Thank goodness for scroll bars!

Some of the very earliest pages make us cringe now... We hope you don't find them ;-)



"Love the easy to understand step by step instructions, made from next to nothing materials and above all so much fun to fly... cheers Tim for sharing your well thought out pdf kite designs with the whole world. Very satisfying making your own and watching them get air-born for the first time."

"I decided to run kite making as an elective again on this camp in the past week - so I bought all your e-books, a bunch of materials, and then took a group of 10 high school students through making the kites over 4 days. We built a diamond, a Barn Door, a Delta, and two skew delta kites. Again - every single kite flew."

FREE E-Book!

I'm referring to Simplest Dowel Kites, my popular kite-making download. It's a printable PDF file. Make a diamond, delta or sled. Each kite is capable of flying hundreds of feet up for hours on end.
