Doctor Who Emoji Robot Artwork (DIY)

Doctor Who Emoji Robot Artwork (DIY)

Hello Internet I’m Matt Haas and this is
Awesome Wood Things. I made this piece of artwork showing an emoji robot. This was
featured on my favorite show which is not surprisingly Doctor Who if you were
anything other than happy in the presence of this robot the computer
screen would change from this emoji face to this one the skull face and then in
about three seconds it would kill you I recently made this Doctor Who alien
which looks terrifying but it’s one of the most gentlest creatures in the
universe that’s what I love about this show there’s probably a life lesson to
be learned there don’t judge things by the way they look this painted the
background and poplar frame use the vinyl cutter for the image and I
constructed this holder which I think I’ll hang separately and all of the
pieces fall into place on the holder because they’re sculpted out to have
them fit perfectly and they all have magnets on the back and they snap
perfectly into place so you can swap them out to reflect however it is you’re
feeling this was part of Shogun jime skull challenge 2017 thanks for hosting
this Jimmy and thank you Eloy Escovedo for the background music which we’ll
play later want to see how I made it stick around
I used an almost empty bottle of spray paint on MDF
oh and Eloy escalators rock-and-roll audio clip will play after this cool
robot music acrylic paint and a sponge are used to add the dust clouds be sure
to leave some of the black background showing through as well a toothbrush adds the star pattern I used the tip of this razor to add
larger stars for the frame I ripped down a piece of
poplar I cut a rabbit with two additional
passes on the table saw I jammed the edges on the router table I use my frame jig to cut the miters like I always do wood glue holds the
frame together and painters tape is used as the clamp it hasn’t failed me yet the ovals for the emoji faces get some
spray adhesive before I put them on the yellow acrylic plastic the bandsaw is used to just get close to
the line I clean that up on this disc sander I apply the vinyl to the acrylic oval this will be used to hold all of the
emoji pieces this wood is just a little bit thicker than the actual yellow
acrylic this solid piece of poplar will be used to hold those thin plywood
strips I think that’s a lot nicer looking so I take several passes on the
table saw to get a nice deep dado I use a marker to make the exposed
surfaces black and these will fit in just tension fit everything gets very
painted black a Forstner bits used to create an area for a large magnet and
this vinyl of the robot it didn’t stick to the paint very well so I knew I was
just going to fix that later two-part epoxy is used to hold the big magnet in
and you won’t see this so it can look a little ugly I just flattened it out the
robot vinyl is going on again this time over glass there’s glass over top of the
starfield this small magnet will be attached to
the emoji with plastic epoxy and this technique lines it up perfectly
