Reference Points

I use little reference points to measure from, with calipers. In the lower torso, I embedded a small wooden dowel in the top center. I twirled a drill bit in the center of the dowel, to make a depression for one point of the calipers to rest in. I use that as my reference point for checking to see if things on both sides are the same. I find it very helpful. I have circled the reference point in red.

On the head, I used a sharp dental tool to make a hole in the chin for one point of the calipers to rest in. From that point, I can check eyes, ears, and other points to see if they are the same on both sides of the head.
