Longest days of the year roughing it out at the lake, sitting in the evening watching the sunset. Ah the life of an automata maker! What do you mean not everyone does this. I am lucky! I’ll admit it.
I am roughing it out though. That is roughing out my polystyrene car for the Santa Day parade. Here is a photo below. Tomorrow is contour day to hopefully have it take a more attractive shape. It has now gotten to big for my shop, so I’ll work outside under a tent if it rains tomorrow.
There is a grandson, some penguin waddlers, a spare penguin, ( maybe for the tow vehicle) and 1 of three wheels, not turning yet I might add. Lots more to come.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
