I Made Some Appliances

July 24, 2017



Hiya, pals!  I'm back to share some more fabrication-y things from my long-in-gestation short film!  When last we talked I showed a glimpse of that armature.  Since then, I've been working on many things, but the most complete (and most exciting!) are some brass appliances.


I've not done a lot of metal work in the past, but its something I've found that I really enjoy.  I could really see myself working primarily on armatures and rigging.  It feels like making actual, tiny machines, which is what 5-year-old Jon would want me to be doing.


I wasted a lot of time making these as practical and fully-articulated as possible, which the film doesn't completely necessitate, but I was learning and having fun.  I guess that's how I always do it.


I made the fan first.  It's not motorized or anything, but it rotates and has a telescoping neck.  Here are some pictures of that:
























The lamp was next.  There is a warm white LED wired into it, and the neck is fully adjustable.  The wire is a little thicker than I would have liked, but I've decided not to hate it.











So, there you go.  I have a few more things to do on each, but they're getting pretty close.  Honestly, I don't have a TON left to do overall, but that doesn't necessarily mean it won't take a while.  See you next time!
