As I sat in front of the TV painting an automata chair I got an email last evening that said water was pouring out from under my garage door in Toronto, almost two hours away. Forty minutes later I expedited someone to enter our house and shut off the water and jumped in the car to drive home. I thought to myself this will cut into my shop time for sure!
Ruined Laminate flooring, wet carpets, sagging drywall ceilings - what could be more fun! All over a SS braided hose on the kitchen sink tap that split after more than twenty five years of service while no one was home. So I'll be doing computer work at home this week while the house dries out and dehumidifies. It wasn't part of the plan. These are lifes little moments!
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
