The manufacturing of each wooden radio comprises 20 production steps. Here is an summary of the main steps:

Selecting the wood and the cut

Regional wood is purchased for the Magno radio. The designer buys it in the surrounding villages personally. Thus it is guaranteed that no uncontrolled wood is used. The amount of wood needed is extremely small. All varieties of wood being utilized are green up on plantations. The amount of wood needed is extremely small: we used 80 trees in 2010 but replanted 8000 all around the village of production. Kartono and his co-workers replace the wood that has been used by planting new trees systematically. A small tree nursery had been set up on the company’s compound. The seedlings are planted on a regular basis, with the collaboration of students at the local high school.


The individual parts are cut by special machines; they are fitted to one another, one by one, and finished by a special polishing technique. The body of the radio is assembled by means of grooves and fittings. Knobs and the battery compartment are customized for each body.

Fitting of the radio receiver

A radio receiver that has been adapted to the construction of the radio is fitted into the body.


Prior to a wooden radio being packed up into a gift box made of wood and cardboard, it is run through one more test in terms of craftsmanship and technology. It goes without saying that you get a two-year guarantee on the device.

Packing & shipping

The Magno radios embark on a six-week journey subsequent to being packed up: from Semarang port via Singapore to Hamburg.
