I'm a working stiff who can't learn enough of the world around. I spend a lot of my time wondering how things work and then figuring out how I can make it work better. I'm a kinetic artist wanna-be without the artistic ability. I am in awe at the abilities of such artists as Theo Jansen, David C. Roy and Reuben Margolin. I was a machinist by trade but chose to seek another career path as I love machining and wouldn't want to lose that love. I built my own cnc machine to cut gears and workings for my one day kinetic sculptures and have spent many a night long into the morning hours figuring out how to make a cnc from wood and have it cut cleanly and accurately. I hope to add many more projects to this site in the coming months and look forward to all the comments and constructive criticism.

thank you all for the warm welcome. I posted my first completed work in the projects section and welcome comments. I have a couple wood gear clocks that I am also working on and am in the planning stages of building a 20 pipe barrel organ. I have so many wonderful ideas and projects I want to build and look forward to all the constructive and maybe not so constructive comments from others on this board. I’ll definitely be picking a lit of minds on here in the coming weeks, months, decades.

again, thank you all so much for the warm welcomes and have a very merry Christmas.

Jeffrey

I just saw your comment of your interest with Theo Jansen, David C. Roy, and others. You mentioned an interest in making gears to make kinetic sculptures. From the looks, you’re already familiar with Clayton Boyer (link), but if you haven’t already seen Matthias Wandel’s site, I’d recommend it. Here’s a link to his gear generator…I highly recommend the purchased version (link). Another good one is Wooden times (link). Sadly, Steve Garrison’s gears are neat, but his ebook is difficult to follow…I’d stick with Woodgears.ca gears.

Have a great day!

Have your say...
