    I wish I had seen this back in the early 80's when I was wanting to make an articulating skeletal hand for the Ghost of Christmas Future in our college's production of 'A Christmas Carol'! I was close to this same concept and trying to use drinking straws as the base to look like bones.

    Thanks so much for doing this!

    I will. I'm very slowly working on a full Instructable but I'm afraid it may be low on progress shots. Regardless, I will have some better macro shots of some of the elements.
