Default Hey Oliver...

@Gaffboat ...

with your flair for ingenuity and design I believe you can do worlds better...
turn the crank, the fingers fold and the thumb raises...
keep tuning and the hand opens and the thumb lowers...

What, you want me to go back and rebuild that project? It took me a long time to figure out the mechanism for the first build: "Extra hand for a one man shop."

Actually, I used the same finger and thumb drawings from that "Thumbs up" project for the latest Salute to Spock project. I think I'm done with hands for the moment. I'm tending towards Ron's @rweerstra children's lamp project for my next foray. Of course, mine will be more suitable for adults.

LoL! ...and I'm still trying to develop that Silent Cookie Jar. When will it ever end? Now, maybe Oliver can make me a cookie jar that just hands me a cookie - SILENTLY.

It's hard for guys like me to sneak a cookie (or four) without Joy hearing me in there! PLEASE SOMEONE - HELP!

GREAT WORK OLIVER! Maybe you can make me a new shoulder, now that wood be cool! (pun intended)

Me too, Otis. Why do the jars always have to be ceramic?

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Okay Oliver, as long as it isn't this one. http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Stor.../dp/B000VWXG0I

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
