Well the little dog ended up as a Chocolate Lab. The first photo is after the pyrography was completed. The next two shots are after a paint job and surface urethane.
The collar still remains to be painted while I decide whether it will be green or red - likely red, the more I think about it. He might yet get a dog tag if I believe it will be visible enough in the final piece.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
