The bit that gives ​Johnny Red Gill his colorful name is a piece that has been kicking around my shop for a couple of years. I have wanted to incorporate it into some sculpture ever since I acquired it from my local thrift store, but it was never the right time or piece, until Johnny came to be.

Johnny Red Gill was created using a crank gear from a hand drill, bicycle sprockets, a scythe blade section bearings, saw blades, drill bitts, a horseshoe, brake springs, vice grips, door hinges, motor gear, snips, pliers, a dough hook and other bits whose origins escape my mind.
