That is so cool. My kids are sitting here laughing asking me if I can make them one. Did you come up with the plans yourself or is there somewhere I can get them?

It’s my contribution to the brand new MAD Museum in Stratford-upon-Avon. Mechanical Art and Design. Kinetic art and automata.
my automata are my own designs, made from various off cuts of wood. I think this is mainly maple, oak and yew for the guitar.
