Default The Visitor

I had a strange visitor arrive at my shop. He’s friendly but just a bit odd as you’ll understand when you watch the video. I’m not sure what he really is, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated. He doesn’t even have a name yet. He told me his real name but I can’t pronounce it. I need something shorter and easier to remember. If you think back to my teaser posts you’ll recognize all the parts which admittedly may have been rotated to confuse the issue.

Outstanding as always, Oliver. Another fun, entertaining project.

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

Another wonderful creation Oliver. Great idea, and works terrifically.

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.
