08 Joint Design Nº 153

I decided to make the cut for the knees at 20cm from the bottom of the feet. 20cm is very, very close to 8.875 inches, so I set my dental tool with the sharp point to that height by taping it to a couple of combination squares. Click on any image to enlarge it.

I checked that height a second time, against a leg. Yes, it still looks okay. Yoshida recommends cutting the leg through the middle of the knee.

I taped the leg down to the table with some masking tape so I wouldn't knock it over accidently, and to keep it from moving too much while I was scribing the line. I did the right leg first.

I used the exact same method to scribe a line around the left leg.

Yeah, those scribed lines look pretty good. I took my time doing this. Why rush it?
