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!
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
