08 Joint Design Nº 329
This photo shows drilling the hole for the knee in the left carving wax leg. First I made a splint with masking tape, to hold the leg in place while drilling. Then I drilled a pilot hole with a smaller diameter drill bit. Finally, I used this drill bit to make the hole. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I used a piece of scrap carving wax to make the carving wax knee plug, which I fit in the hole.
Then I used my wax pen to weld the carving wax plug into the hole. I am going to let this cool down before I try to shape the knee with my paring knife. If it works, I will repeat this whole process on the right knee.
