  • Automata

    rhymes with whatsamatta.

    I was looking on the web for mechanical wooden toys, whirligigs and the like.
    I came upon some whimsical automata.

    I think the wit used in the designs is as intriguing as the woodwork itself.
    like this one from "Our Wooden Wonders"

    Has anyone made any automata or whirligigs, and are they willing to post pictures?

    Here is an example of what I am talking about. I just wish I could see it animated.

      Wednesday evenings between 3 am and 4 am, LOL
      I get on the saw when I feel the urge. but I confess it has been a couple of weeks.
      I do have to get back on though, I just picked up a bunch of music box movements. The kind you crank, not the kind you wind.
      I may just take a week off work and buckle down.

            Thanks for the advice Linda, I may have to do that. The future bride and groom are avid golfers so I would like to do something special for them. Also I am Godfather to the bride and I'm very humbled that she asked me to do this for her.

            Good guesses, but no. It’s very useful and “outside the box.”

            My first thought is to hold the small paint bottles, but the holes are not symmetrically spaced....
