Another chunk of the new automata to go with he chairs. This is a lower leg, feminine looking I hope, that is part of the same piece. The leg will pivot a the knee. The actuating arm is a thin piece of brass that has been epoxied into place in a slit cut in the top of the leg. This will all be hidden in the upper leg if things continue to go according to plan. Keep following I'll add another piece of the clue tomorrow.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
