Working away shaping the head and body of my next project. As a sewer rat, I'll likely name him Norton in honour of the old Honeymooners TV series. In building Norton the eyeballs and some of the operating mechanism had to be installed before install the eyelids and brow, which is meant to give him a sinister look. At this point his arm is not yet attached. His head is flat since he will be balancing a manhole cover on his head.
Here is another earlier photo showing the eye mechanism installed before the addition of the eyelids.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
