08 Joint Design Nº 159

This is a 40mm paper template. I use it to position the knee ball. Click on any image to enlarge it.

Once positioned where I want it, I use my X-Acto knife to scribe a line around it.

I use my paring knife to carve out to the line.

As I am carving, I test the cut with the 40mm ping pong ball I used to make a mold for 40mm carving wax balls. I twist the ping pong ball back and forth in the leg, and it rubs a spot in places. Then I carve where the spot was made.

When the ping pong ball fits, I try the carving wax ball. It fits perfectly.
