Well it seemed like forever for me but I eventually finished my latest piece, "Pond Life". Originally it was to be "The Life of a Frog" but the addition of Billy the bass, and Willy the water snake as a handle made rename the piece. As I mentioned before, even though it was a simple project in concept, I made more little boo-boos and &*$@# along the way than any other piece I've done. So this will go down as a real labour of love. I thought about putting it aside many times!
Anyway here is a photo. In a view days I'll throw together a video and post it.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
