High Wire Pull


I spent today putting the final touches on the High Wire Mechanical Theatre so that it will be ready for Portland Open Studios next weekend.  I had to restring the pulls on the actual #6 ball chain (the working model chain is all coupled together) and took pictures to show construction.  The pulls have great feel – they are supple and move kind of like a backbone would when you are using them to operate the curtains.  For reference they are about 4″ long and are made from Alaskan Yellow Cedar, and painted with milk paint.
