We All Live in a Wooden Submarine

 |  |  |  |  |  April 23, 2021

Because one can never have too much whimsy, Taiwanese carpenter and automata maker Chi-Chun Yin constructed the ‘Ark III’, a wooden submarine automata crewed by a bunch of different animals. With a turn of a crank (cleverly doubling as the sub’s propeller), the entire crew is brought to life. It’s absolutely bursting at the seams with whimsy!

Yin says it took about six months to complete the project from conception to completion, which is impressive considering the wooden birdhouse I started constructing six months ago is still in pieces, one of which is glued to my arm.

I’ve always wished I was better at carpentry and woodworking, but I’ve come to realize they require some amount of skill and patience, two things I have in very short supply. I did make a ship in a bottle once though. Okay, I bought a ship in a bottle once.
