Spent some time this weekend reworking and building the mechanism section of the automata shown in the last blog. This always seems to take longer than you think it should!
The bottom and sides are temporary pieces. When the mechanism is finalized I will reproduce them in poplar. Right now the box is held together with screws so it will stay rigid while make revisions and can be disassembled.
More to follow.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
