I’m in a Box building contest at SMC sponsored by Baileigh. I’m up against numerous projects to some degree were build by lasers or CNC’s While I have to applaud their abilities, it saddens me a bit that there weren’t more hand made entries. Anyway here is my project.
This box is titled “John Henry”
My friend Paul Miller who I’d like to thank for all his help & advice through out this build suggested this title. John Henry was in a competition in the 1870’s to drill blasting holes for the railroad against a steam hammer. In the end, he won, but he fell down dead. Being that I’m up against so many modern machines and I do feel like I could fall down dead, I thought it was perfect. In this build every step was a hands on process, no automation was used.
