Another attempt at wooden Automata.
I made a few others over the winter, this is by far the most complex.
It’s kind of fun to figure out how to make the parts do what you want them to do.
everything was pretty much eyeballed so no real precision engineering.

Made from scraps of Maple and dowels, a few bits of oak.

-- If we could just get everyone to close their eyes and visualize world peace for an hour, imagine how serene and quiet it would be until the looting started.

LOL! No, literally, I laughed out loud. Inventive work, and thanks for the laugh.
