no previous part Part 1 of "Automaton" series Part 2: body work »

I made something similar to this several years back and wanted to do an improved version since my carving skills have improved a bit. I am also a big fan of Wanda Sowery and others who make these wonderful machines. I drew up some sketches of the figures I wanted for this and I have started carving them out. This is the face I came up with. The hat is a separate piece of wood that is glued on.

More to come!

The grin on that face suggests this going to be a cool project!
