Hi Everyone,

Gear Heart has arrived and I wanted to share some pictures and video with you all.
Here is a link to the product page: Gear Heart

I got a little too excited and I forgot to take pictures of the pieces before I sent them swimming. Sad

I used Jacquard Vermillion Acid Dye following the instructions on their website and got some strange results. If anybody would like details on how to achieve the same strange results, just let me know. I'd be happy to share. Razz

Here is the assembled heart!

The dyed heart looks, feels, and sounds like it is made from wood. (Perhaps, Purpleheart?)

Anyhow, let's get to what we've all been waiting for... ::drum roll:: ... the video!

Gear Heart - The Movie! (and, in .mp4 format, here)

I have one more video to show that, although some of the gears have "play" in them, the model as a whole is still fairly rigid and certainly quite durable. (Perhaps I'll be able to tighten it up a bit with a revision.)

Thank you to everyone for all the kind words and encouragement I've received so far. I really appreciate it.

Best regards,
~David
