    Andrew's Art Dump -update 10-24-2014

    Hi,

    I'm consolidating all my old posts into one thread and posting some new stuff as well. Critique/input is always welcome.

    Regards
    Andrew

    This is my second giraffe. I made it out of transmission parts, electrical conduit, and plumbing pipe. All the joints rotate and lock. Turning a removable crank on the Giraffe's side raises the neck. Lifting the tail releases a catch and lowers the neck. It's about 6 feet tall and it took about 80 hours to build.

    My first try at an elephant. It weighs in at a finger crunching 110 pounds and is about 36 inches long and 33 inches tall. The trunk is cable operate, the ears move and flare, the tusks raise and lower and all the leg joints can rotate and lock in place.

    I'll post more tomorrow

    This is a conference table I made for Richter 7, an ad agency in Salt Lake City. It's roughly based on the an early steam engine designed by James Watts. It's sixteen feet long and 5 feet wide at the center and weighs more than I care to think about. I made it out of transmission parts, angle iron, plate steel, conduit, pipe, brake drums, and a helium tank from Costco for the boiler.

    more later

    I made this bookcase for one of Richter 7's partners. It's 10 feet tall and weighs well over 1000 pounds. I bolted it together in the guy's office, collected seven or eight of the burliest guys in the company, and by lifting in unison like Amish barn raisers, we managed to heave it up against the wall.

    I made this tank out of a spray paint can, plumbing fixtures, threaded rod, concrete anchors, a propane tank, and transmission parts.

    Good to see you're still working on this Andrew. How's the book coming along in general? I still want to order a copy once it's done.

    Holy crap man, too cool for words. All of it. Just . . . so awesome. Mechanical stuff is a mystery to me, so all of this is bending my mind in wonderful ways.
