  • 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.

            Celtic knot-shamrock cross
            by Ennobee
            My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

            Hi Jim.
            glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

            Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

            Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
            by jim_mex
            I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
