This is my Dynamo Man reboot. My buddy and fellow Lumberjock John Hutchinson is the designer of this automated lamp which we call Dynamo Man. You can see John’s posting from last week: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/181578
He challenged me to do a version in my style. Here are my results: I used intarsia to build my guy: He is made from Maple for the skin, Walnut for the clothes, Padauk for the hat and shoes, Ebony for the hair, mustache, and belt. The case is Birdseye Maple and Padauk. He runs on a small 120vac 16rpm continuous motor. I am not sure what he does for a living but I am going to add a vintage Edison bulb for the light and 2 or 3 whisky barrels behind him. Possibly a bootlegger? Sorry John, even as a bootlegger, my guy has more class than yours.
You can see a short video of him in motion here (I apologize for the quality, I used my cell phone):
Thanks for looking. You can also see more of John’s fantastic wood in motion video’s here:
