Introduction: The Dress Made of Wood

This dress is made entirely from poplar wood molded to shape using the bent wood lamination technique. The under dress is constructed entirely out of pantyhose.

The skirt is completely mechanical--simply by pulling the rings on either side of the model's chest the entire skirt raises up and collapses within itself to "curtsy."

    You make some great stuff - you really ought to take "in process" images so that you can post proper step-by-step instructables for others to follow.
