on my bench.. circus performer themed automaton

Three weeks ago it was a hat. Now after tons of work it's starting to look like my the vision of what it should be in my head. I updated my woodworking skills learning how to make wooden gear mechanisms and found that the look of the wood parts added a whole new element visually that took it outside normal robot design looks. Riffing off that I built a new body and leg. In the end there will be six legs, a little more electronics and some visual elements added to create the character. I'm super happy with the way it's starting to look.
