  • 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.

            SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

            Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...
