Looks like your blank canvas is a very cool wooden midi?

I have heard a lot of negative comments, but I am quite excited. I just ordered
mine. I will use it as a template to make my own articulated version. #backtowoodworking

I have been wanting to make one out of wood anyway. I have been saving some walnut
just for this project, but I will try other lighter woods as well.

American Black Walnut, was one of my absolute favorite woods back when I was
building furniture. That and Elm. But Elm is difficult to work with, being soft
for a closed-grain wood, splinters easily. In Sweden, where I did this, it was
a very expensive species to build with. Luckily, the Swedes were all about the
light or blonde woods at the time, and I could pick-up board footage from other
projects, comparatively cheap on occasion.

Walnut's a beautiful wood, Miro. I'd enjoy seeing it, if/when you build
it! Maybe start with the lighter, cheaper species, though. Until you perfect
the process.

Good point Cory. I will save the walnut for later. I will work with something
lighter and softer that does not split easily.
I do have some perfectly dry douglas fir 6"x"6"x7' posts that I have left
over from my old pergola that I took down this spring. This should give me plenty
of wood stock to start and make mistakes with. I will try with tools I currently
have, but I might need get a scrawl or band saw for the finer cuts like the
hands and arms. I'll post pictures here when I make some progress.

I'd enjoy seeing the total project, at least as much as you'd care to
share.

When I've time for youtube, it's these types of individual and creative
projects I watch. Don't really know why, but I enjoy watching others create,
or work

I thoroughly enjoy both creating and renewing projects. I've got a few I
follow, like this: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg-_lYeV8hBnDSay7nmphUA

Thanks for the Tally Ho rebuilding project link. I am on episode 12 now. What
a great project to watch. It’s right up my alley for my sort of educament (educational
entertainment). Have you gone to check it out? Not sure how far that is from
you.

I really look forward to my next woodworking project now.

"educament" I like it. Did you come up with that?

  Have you gone to check it out? Not sure how far that is from you.

Not that far. Haven't been there yet, though. I've suggested to my son
and daughter, his place as a destination in a couple of our outings. We'll
get there.

  
I really look forward to my next woodworking project now.

It is inspiring, watching these types of projects.

Nice I for sure wanna get myself one of these would be a nice display if anything
but looks cool and is kind of a reflection of how Lego first started with wooden
stuff
