I haven't posted for a while since I have been distracted working on a renovation and not doing any automata work. I am going to have to allot a certain amount of time to my automata work so things don't grind to a halt.
Here's a selfie of me bundled up to remove old fibreglass insulation! It's a safe but highly unfashionable look! Orange with pink - what was I thinking.
Nice weather suddenly arrived and I headed outdoors so things slowed in the shop this past week. Here is a couple of views of Curly, Larry and Moe. You can see the progression of making the feet in the second photo, one finished, one in progress, one not started! They will be standing on a branch.
The first photo will be the front. Curly taps Larry on the shoulder from behind. Larry turns to look behind him and seeing no one turns to blame Moe. Moe will shake his head in denial. It can actually be viewed from both sides but I think the storyline works better from the back.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
