Stop Motion Puppet Pt. 1


Step 5: Cutting the pieces.

Using the cut list, measure out the lengths of material needed for the bone structure.

We're going to start with a 1" arm section.

Clamp your material down in a vice, Using the rotary tool, carefully cut off the section of dowel. Its always better to cut a little extra and sand down to size than it is to cut too short and have to re-cut a piece.

Follow this procedure for the rest of the pieces. I found while trying to cut the 1/2" x 1/2" basswood, that the rotary tool would not allow me to make the cuts so I had to pull out a hand saw to finish the job.

It also might be a good idea to label your pieces with a permanent marker in case you need to leave the project and come back at a later time.
