Default Just a teaser

Usually I wait until a project is finished before I make a post but my latest animated creation is going to take some time. Since I have this part of it pretty much completed I thought I'd share it as a little tease about what will be upcoming (eventually ).

The scale is roughly 1:20 and the structure is about 2 3/4" x 3" x 5" tall and most of it is made from basswood.

Stay tuned.

A 'No Holer' then'?

I love your art, Oliver. Your attention to detail is amazing.
Those calender art pieces must be tiny! (even if they are digital)

Yeah, Dan, the carpenter said he'd be back to cut the hole but you know how unreliable those guys can be. Yes the calendar art is pretty small. To give you a sense of scale, the toilet paper roll is 1/4" wide.

Sort of makes you ask Why?? . . .

“We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.” - Mark Twain

*Bogglement!*
Hope you didn't pay the carpenter up front...

Oh, boy! I can only guess what the end result will be! If Oliver is true to form, it'll be entertaining.

The things that come out of this man's mind are amazing. If Oliver were a criminal the cops wouldn't stand a chance.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

The pictures should be on the back of the door. What a great miniature. This piece needs to be installed in a large size railroad diorama. You certainly have one detail right, the paper is going over the top of the roll! If you can find a cover shot of a Sears catalogue from the era, hang it from a string. That was what those catalogs were for in the old days--early recycling. Beautiful work. Looking forward to seeing the final result.

I've attached an old catalog cover and a miniature of a page of underwear, which were the mens magazine of the outhouse era. We had an outhouse in a desert property when I was a kid. It was on the edge of a military tank training base and someone tore it down to get an Army truck from the sand in the wash.
