    Default Completed + Video

    125 hours, project completed. A third of that was the carving of the three figures, the rest, a fairly simple mechanism. Attached is a not too flash video. A slightly longer version can be seen here: https://youtu.be/WAbWe_ZMyBM
    I hope it might amuse, and thank all who followed the build, and commented.
    I still have hopes that some may jump in and have a go at making these unusual objects. A warning though, it becomes an addiction.....

    Thanks very much Keith !
    I agree with you re the video length.The problem with large videos is the file size restricted to 7mb on the forum, so only so much can be fitted in while still showing an overview. That, and the fact that my video and editing capabilities are severely limited.
    I appreciate your support,
    Regards,
    Gus
