Keyboard Kat Progress

Sun, 24 Apr 2016

Late stage prototype for the cat part of the Keyboard Kat model.
I've added a head. No sides on this prototype yet but they'll be added later. I've also changed the design of the arms, bending the elbows inwards moving the hands closer together. Finally I have shortened the body and added legs.

The pull straps work nicely for moving the arms up and down. They protrude through the base of the cat and will be connected up to a pair of cam followers.

With the cat seated on a suitable piano stool the straps will be hidden from view.
Next: The base and cams. The project seems to be coming together quite nicely 🙂

    My youngest daughter has already claimed dibs on the first one I make.  What does that mean? On the first one I make? How many am I making?


    Thanks for the update!
