Been a few days since an entry. Things to do plus hot humid weather that keeps you by the lake, not in the shop. While sitting by the water carving is relaxing it is not quite as productive as time spent working in the shop.
Anyway the rhino, rhino number 1 anyway, is coming along. He needs the relief carving of his blanket, and of course a jockey and tack!
Hot weather is settling down, a few shows are on the horizon, and shop cleaning is nearly done, so it's time to think about projects again. I think I'm going to start with a little piece that has been battling around in my brain for a while now. It involves a Rhinoceros, maybe a few in fact, so I have done some work on design of a racing Rhino. Here's the CAD wireframe drawing. I'll likely start building him this weekend. I''ll let you know how it turns out.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
