I received a note to my website from Wim van der Wal from Vlissingen in the Netherlands. He asked about plans that I might have as he was eagerly getting into making automata. After exchanging a couple of emails he sent me this photo of a character he adapted from a plan he bought from Philip Lowndes in England. It was like visiting an old friend. I had purchased the same plan from Philip as I stated on my path. I especially like the way Wim embellished the character with stringy hair and whiskers. Nice touch Wim.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
