How to build Montessori Pincer & Palmer Grasp Cylinders? Answered
Does anyone have a good idea for how one would build Montessori Pincer & Palmer Grasp Cylinders?
The basic block and cylinder seem pretty straight forward:
- Get some large dowel for the cylinders
- Get/cut some blocks that are slightly larger than the diameter of the dowel
- Drill the holes with a forstner bit
But how about the little knob on the pincer cylinder? I don't have a lathe so couldn't shape a single piece of dowel.
I'm thinking of shaping the top from a bit of dowel by hand with a small hole and then gluing that to another.
