Junk Box Robot

As we have started talking about a Junk Box Build in another thread I thought I would kick it off with "Charlie" the Junk Box robot. It was built out of some old blocks of wood and watch parts, button batteries and an asortment of stainless steel screws. The Head swivels on a ball bearing and the red mouth was made from a Q-tip shaft and colored with a magic marker, the body was stained and clear coated with shellac.

I forgot to how much I enjoy working with wood, it look great and is so easy to machines and turn on the lathe. This may be the first in many wood robots.

Robot Build Off

A few years ago Mark (Eagle) started The Dollar Store Robot Build Off that was a huge success that had many members building a vast array of fantastic robots. Since it's been slow lately on the forum and winter being here maybe it is time to have another Robot Build Off!!! I suggest the rules to be "NO Rules", in other words you can use any material, any manufacturing process (hand, machine, etc). You can even use existing robots and modify them.

Just like the last Build Off, we will have NO judging, and No Awards.  :biggrin:  

Let's hear if we any any interest on a new Build Off!
