Found Object Art: Robots!

What do you do with the junk in your garage? When you install something in your house and you save the left over parts, do you keep them just in case? Well, we do. Needless to say, we have a ton of stuff. I am happy to say that I am finally putting it to good use. With the technical help of my wonderful husband and my mother's day present (a commercial grade drill), I built this fun robot!
Legs are a former candle holder. Skirt a former food mold. Body a commercial pressure gauge. Arms are cabinet pulls. Head is a former beverage shaker. Various nuts and bolts for features.

Parts were found in our garage, Goodwill half-off day, Habitat Home Store, and a warehouse obsolete junk pile.
