Robot Construction

This version of the head and torso are much smaller than the previous balsa wood version. It’s also built from pine wood, so it’s not so flaky and crumbly when I drill or sand it. John Sumner, fabricator and builder extraordinaire at Buddy Systems, helped me shape the angles of the torso in the workshop (thank you Sumner!).  The pine still splintered a bit, but I spackled over it and sanded it down. The eyes have these the perfect size plastic pieces that are from a peephole (thanks Doug!).
