Wood gears and 20,000 Leagues under the Sea


I’ve been watching 20,000 leagues like a fiend and I decided I wanted to do something Jules Verne inspired.. Decided to cut out some wood gears out of wood. A lot harder than it looks! The last one I made is the top center cog in the third image and it is closer than all the rest to being symmetrical. This was a fun day in the garage. No projects to work on and just messing around trying out different techniques. I even made two bracket looking things seen in the last images for the hell of it. I love curves and circles. Not sure what I am going to do with all these, but at the end of the night I decided to use a leftover center from the Skyrim shields and do a loose interpretation of a Ouija board in 20,000 leagues under the sea style. I kinda missed the boat, but I think I am going to cut out a trim ring to put over the circle and turn the whole thing into a porthole type piece and engrave A – Z and numbers on it, so it looks closer to a Ouija Board!
