08 Joint Design Nº 22




After all my research into designing ball joints, I still have not made up my mind how I want to proceed. When in doubt, do some work. As it turns out, I have plenty of work to do on the carving wax doll parts.

The first thing I am going to do is open up the leg holes in the torso. I start by drilling a pilot hole with a 1/4 inch drill bit. Click on any image to enlarge it.






Then I use a 1/2 inch drill bit, and open the holes up more.






Finally, I use a jeweler's alcohol burner to heat the blade of my paring knife, and open the hole up even more.
