Woody shoots Pool

[Jeanne reacts to Woody shooting pool] [Woody shooting pool]

On Saturday we did a belated Birthday dinner for Jeanne, and gave her gifts. One of which has a story that... well... we won't go into detail, but it's cool even without the backstory. It's a cowboy (who happens to be Woody) that shoots pool. In the right image you can see motion blur (a reason I need to buy that D-30, trying to capture that with the S100 was hard). Yeah, the pool table is a little blocky, but Charlene and I needed to hide the mechanism and didn't know how large it'd end up being. The crank is on the other side.

I'm expecting plans, along with a materials list, for this little project to be published directly.

Built the cam mechanism out of styrene, with a pen spring. Table surface is actually felt, dark wood is walnut, return mechanisms, base and the rest of the structural bits are basswood or bass plywood.

I'm actually too embarassed with the clunkiness of the cam to publish the details of that... next time I'll know how to do it right better.
