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.
