08 Joint Design Nº 105

I curled some cereal box cardboard around one of the joint balls and taped it into a cylinder with some masking tape. Then I marked off 1cm marks from a center line. I used an X-Acto knife to transfer the marks to the carving wax leg. The idea is to try and transfer the scribed lines I have made on the right leg to the left leg. I will be measuring up from the bottom of the leg to the line, then making the same mark on the left leg. I hope it will work. Click on any image to enlarge it.

Using the same piece of cereal box cardboard, I transfer the 1cm marks to the left leg, using the X-Acto knife.

The idea is that for every mark on the right leg, there is a distance from the bottom of the leg to the scribed line, as shown by the arrow in the photo below.

Using a pair of dividers, I measure the distance at each 1cm mark, and make a dot. Then I connect the dots to make the line on the left leg. Like I said, I hope this works. I must remember to double-check my work before I cut the carving wax. The rule is: Measure twice, cut once.
