Wooden Kinetic Dog-chasing-tail

Intro: Wooden Kinetic Dog-chasing-tail

This is a wooden dog that I made that runs in circles chasing its own tail.
- the key is hand cranked, spinning the top half of the base
- as the top base spins, it spins the 'pistons'  and make the legs move
        - the wood squeaks, but it sounds like a whimper =]
- it's a dog chasing its tail! what else

    Awesome kinetic art. Please post an instructable and that can just be plans for every piece. This is the sort of thing you need to hand down to future generations.

    You know how when people post pictures laying on their side is annoying? Videos lying on their side is even worse.

    nifty kinetic sculpture though.
