This was in my head so I had to see if I could make it. I call it “How my brain works” I uploaded a link to the video of how it works, hopefully it was successful.
Here is the link.
I turned the people out of Juniper. The box and Wheels are Cherry and the pistons are oak. All of the wood was scrap. This was a fun project. The people were all painted with food coloring. I spray painted the wheels and stained all the pistons a different stain. The arms and legs were wooden beads that I had in my shop.
After some research on toys with gears I found that these toys are actually called Automata. I think I might try my hand at a more difficult one in the future. They have peaked an interest in me. Hope you enjoy.
Any feedback is appreciated.
