Wooden bots & Characters
When not sweating behind the computer, Loulou can be found in his little shed, covered in dust, utilizing dangerous woodworking machinery. Sanding, chiseling and glueing various pieces of tree together. He's building an army of robots and other creatures big enough to take on a raccoon!
For those who are interested in the details:
- Sizes vary from 5 to 15cm high.
- Wood is mainly black walnut, maple, beech, zebrano, iroko and oak.
- Machines used: table saw, table router, scroll saw, dremel tool, table disk sander, small hand sander, drillpress (except for the tablesaw, none of these tools are very fancy machinery by the way. All just pretty cheap, home made, borrowed or old and battered tools) Beside machines most of the work is done by hand with chisels, various files, small saws, a hammer and loads of sanding paper.
