28 August 2019, One born, one into the trash.
I have discarded A Sunday Drive. I simply could not focus enough continual enthusiasm. Too many other automata kept poking their way around A Sunday Drive. So I’ve thrown it away. It’s in the garbage. No different I guess than a painter painting over a failed painting.
And there has been a birth this week. The biped for Inclined Slide #1 has emerged from a block of basswood. It’s still in rough shape (as opposed to finished). Shoulder hinges are installed. I need to install ankle, knee, and hip hinges…and I need to make a test stand for this biped.
I am building a carry case for Big Wheel Lift #2.
Our weather here in Southern California has been a bit too warm…so I generally don’t work in the middle of the afternoon…but the rest of the time my studio is comfortable.
I don’t feel bad about discarding A Sunday Drive…I feel good. I learned and I got some fresh ideas. Good things.
