I spent 3 hours today hanging and adjusting little doors!

It is still too cold to work in my garage but I have so many ideas for automata and need to finish projects that are underway first. I have been braving the cold for short spells and have now almost finished the wooden set for my newest Devil in the Cupboard automaton.

My 'Puppet Challenge' puppet is taking shape. I am now hoping that the ogre's head will eventually fit in the girls head!
I couldn't resist making various ogre features 3D.
After working out the best position, parts were tacked into place before machining.
I used some iron on adhesive to position 2D features.
I have a rough plan of how I want the ogre to look but as I went along I positioned each feature in relation to the ones already in place.
So here is the almost finished result.
The little girl may need big hair!
I have carved the girl's face in wood to give it a mask like quality.
