The processes involved when I make stuff: sculpting, programming, electronics, carving, moulding, etc. Mostly puppets, automata, sculpture, occasionally furniture, interactives, food, etc. Usually fairly detailed and image-led. Please reuse any ideas, tips, thoughts and approaches.

Carving a nicely creepy chair back on the gargoyle chair
My current labour of love is to reconstruct my 1994 gargoyle chair into a new thronereal version with much better arm and back support. I have a special fondness for the original but I have to admit it has always looked much better than it felt to sit upon.
Here is the original chair as completed in 1994. It's one of my favourite things I have made.
Here's my first design sketch that shows how I was hoping to re-imagine it.
...and here's another more developed design.
Well, partly after. Here is where I am with it after a few weeks of work.
