Things took a giant leap forward for the future of Conquergood Creative when No 1. grandson decided that making an automata project of his own might be interesting. Of course the conceptual design was over the top, the attention span allotted was limited and a little skill development is still required: but you can't stifle creativity and we set off on a short project.
A little saw safety training and we were cutting out a ninja, Star Wars storm trooper, warrior, battle bot, transformer kind of thing: or something like that! Grandson projects seem to have priority over my automata production.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
