Here is the glue up of the main cam shaft of the Sleptin automata. I'm showing this because you will notice that the internal partition wall is part of the assembly. The gear on the right is already glued on as are a number of the cams on the left. In fact, the shaft support on the left end had to be slid on before the final piece, the Geneva wheel. Once dropped into place the partition and pedestal support are screwed to the base. You have to consider the assembly process as you go. Here you can also see a small pedestal glued to the portion instead of the base.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
