The instructable I decided to make was a UFC ring. I've  chosen to do this because UFC seems to be pretty popular & I was interested to see how it would turn out ,& it will make a great gift for A family member. I also chose to do this because  I am going to be making a stop motion video for my culmination in animation technology class.

step 1:start off by grabbing grey pole  k'nex s and connecting them to the connectors making a octagon (8sides).Do this two times. This will be the base of the structure for the ufc ring.

step2:You then take some some of your eight sided connectors (white/black) and connect them to your red K'nexs  poles making the octagon structure have some more support for when you place you metal sheet in future steps.


step 3:You then grab some of your Harvey straws and cut them to equal size of the grey K'nexs poles .To make it look like a black  structure to give it a more realistic effect .Place the grey K'nexs poles in the straws.


step2: After you have completed your structure,so two octagon structures with support ,take some more of you grey K'nexs poles and  hot glue them into the circular part of  the connecting piece. making the the two octagon structures in a 3d octagon

Did you ever see one of those vibrating hockey games. Maybe you could add the vibrating thing to yours and the wrestling dudes would move around. Just an idea!

Where did you get those cool boxing dudes ? Do they have a Van Dam, Stalone, Chuckles Norris, Arnold Schwartsenegger, or Bruce Lee, Hulk Hogan, to name a few! I would build this if I had those guys to fight. Where do they sell them? Nice job. Also , love your blue nails!
Ooops, I meant multicolored nails!
