Here's a sneak peek at the finished A Boat, A Boy, And A Dog, as it leaves the shop on its way to video production. What can be more fun than blasting around the lake in a tin boat with man's best friend - it is almost a rite of passage in cottage country!
OOPS! There is radio on in the background so you might want to mute before playing!
Yes it has been a while since a serious blog entry has occurred here. What happened? Life happened! Other projects, summer heat and all the thousands of little things that keep you out of the workshop. I have however been sitting by the lake every now and then designing some new stuff. Nothing really big, but rather a collection of small designs that I am calling my Summer 2021 Series.
Here is a peek of the first one under construction. Watching all the kids running around on the lake takes me back to childhood days. It is called "A Boat, A Boy and A Dog". Below are photos of the principal unassembled components. When completed the boat will bounce, the boy will steer, and the dog will wag his tail enthusiastically.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
