Hello all! You may already know of the whimsies created by Dug North, and if you don’t, you’re about to discover some wonderful creations.
Dug North, toy automaton maker turned clockmaker, has decided to sell one of his marvels entitled Mekanikos vs. The Menotaur. See more photos, watch a video, and read about Dug’s process here. It is truly a work of art and clearly took an incredible amount of time, as every single piece is hand-made. It deserves a pedestal in a good home! To learn more about Dug and his work – you can find a link on the side bar under Blogs/Forums entitled “The Automata Blog” or click here.
In other news, I have recently found a potential workshop space. Super excited to see if it pans out.
This is a miniature lathe made by Manson that actually works. I just want to get a tiny generator and take this tiny lathe on a picnic…. Let’s go to the beach lathe!

(Thanks for the photo Frank and letting me hold this tiny beauty).
