I made this spider from a stainless steelbar.

It was actually a big bolt wich i found, i just cut the threaded part out.

I used angle grinder and dremel rotary tool for shaping.

Used 40 grit flap disk for rough shaping, then i finished it with dremel using tungsten carbide cutters.

Step 1: Start

I started shaping from the back. I removed material slowly from the all sides to keep it symmetrical.

I used flap disks wich have sharp edge, its possible to make quite accurate grooves with them.

Step 2: Starting Dremeling Process..

I wanted to make "Angry spider" so i tried to shape the face look grumpy.

I used tungsten carbide cutters for shaping, mostly dremels models 9910, 9911, 9903

Step 3: Legs..

I made legs from 5mm welding rods. Shaped them with tungsten carbide cutters, and after that i weld them to the body with tig. Rods that i used we're 309 mol, it has little more molybdenum, that makes them little more easier to bend.

Step 4: Web

I did the web from 3.2mm tig welding rods. I twisted them to round, and then cut suitable pieces from them.

I welded the web together again using tig.

Finally i finished the project polishing it with the autosol chrome paste.

Step 5: Ready..

Finished Angry spider
