Spent some time on the tooth fairy today. She's coming along. I am fairly comfortable that I will be able to fit the wings into this version of the fairy and make room for all the mechanism requirements.
This is a project where the time spent in carving the characters could well out weigh the time spent making the drive mechanism. Of course you always have the choice to make more two-dimensional simple characters but I like to have them look more realistic. As you can see, I've still got a lot of carving skills to build though.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
