I made this spider from a stainless steelbar.
It was actually a big bolt wich i found, i just cut the threaded part out.
I used angle grinder and dremel rotary tool for shaping.
Used 40 grit flap disk for rough shaping, then i finished it with dremel using tungsten carbide cutters.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Start
I started shaping from the back. I removed material slowly from the all sides to keep it symmetrical.
I used flap disks wich have sharp edge, its possible to make quite accurate grooves with them.
Step 2: Starting Dremeling Process..
I wanted to make "Angry spider" so i tried to shape the face look grumpy.
I used tungsten carbide cutters for shaping, mostly dremels models 9910, 9911, 9903
Step 3: Legs..
I made legs from 5mm welding rods. Shaped them with tungsten carbide cutters, and after that i weld them to the body with tig. Rods that i used we're 309 mol, it has little more molybdenum, that makes them little more easier to bend.
Step 4: Web
I did the web from 3.2mm tig welding rods. I twisted them to round, and then cut suitable pieces from them.
I welded the web together again using tig.
Finally i finished the project polishing it with the autosol chrome paste.
Step 5: Ready..
Finished Angry spider
