A Boybot and his Dogbot

Boybot Finished
Dug North writes –

I have made some additions and put the finishing touches on an automaton I started a few years ago: A Boybot and His Dogbot.

Stylistically, this piece is different than my other automata in that I have used geometric shapes for the figures and have decided to leave the wood unfinished. I experimented with painting the figures, but they lost too much of their charm.

The piece is on public display at The Charles River Museum of Industry in Waltham, Massachusetts, USA.

Here’s a link to detailed pictures of the figures and the mechanism from A Boybot and His Dogbot.
