I design and make wooden Automata. I make a mix of commissioned pieces for big birthdays and anniversaries and pieces for various galleries and exhibitions in the UK.

I keep the mechanisms quite simple, I don't paint or varnish the wood. I use different natural colours of wood instead.

I sometimes work from photos of individuals, their kitchens, workshops, offices or own items to make the details personal.

All the wood I use is either reclaimed or small off cuts. Most the shaping is done on a tatty (and noisey) mini belt sander with a inch wide belt. I have a small bandsaw, scroll saw, pillar drill and a dremel.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty
