The Piano Man

Well, Steve over at Scrollsaw Workshop did it again. He knocks out so many great patterns, its hard to keep up with. So I usually only write about the truly unique items and this one takes the cake. This time it's an Automata pattern. A what? Automata is a mechanical toy that mimics some sort of event or action. Steve's pattern features a hand crank that makes a man play the piano.

Automata is something I've always wanted to try my hand at. Steve says this pattern is pretty easy build and can made with materials that are readily available. He has included a 2 part video explaining the parts of the machine and how he assembled them. Naturally the pattern is available for free and downloadable at his website.

Play it again Sam.
