You are finished! Now squeeze the dowels bellow your cross piece and watch your trapeze artist do his thing! Trapeze Toy from Nono Solo on Vimeo...
I made this old fashion style trapeze toy in the image of my friend Matt for his birthday. You can make one to look like any person or thing you like!
Step 1: 1. Body parts:
I first designed the body parts for the trapeze puppet in Illustrator then sent them to the laser cutter. You'll need a torso, two arms and two legs. I also added some glasses and a moustache that I glued on to complete the resemblance. You should include tiny wire sized holes where the legs and arms will join to the body.
