Here you get a step by step intro, how to weld a static-robot-extremity and how to plan a simple stand from solid wood.
Enjoy and remake it if you like.
Step 1: Planning the construction
- Think about the time you want to place on the project
- The size is not the proper point
- The more details you want, the more time will be needed
I decided to model my left hand, because I'm righty and the left hand is rather easy to measure.

b) Think about an adequate stand for the blob of iron:
In my case I wanted to have a smooth swing in a solid block of beech-wood
Take in mind:
- Straight is easy
- A dome is also easy and feels just fine when it's smoothly grinded
- The inward curve sucks! The smoothing is really hard going and not advisable for quick stands.
