This is one of two of the 3/4" rings I used for the top and bottom of the body. All the other pieces are 1/2".
This is the bottom 3/4" ring with most of the trimming done.The slots you see on the outer edge are for the vertical ribs. The paper you see is a ful scale cutout from a wood frame template made by droid master Mike Senna (a Club member). This template is on the yahoo group site.
I lied earlier. These pieces are also 3/4". These are for the shoulder support. Later, I will drill a hole through each for a metal pipe that will connect the legs to the body. Be careful making these pieces because I had difficulty cutting them to matching sizes and fitting them correctly in the body.
These are the vertical ribs. Again, I used the Senna template to cut these to fit.
Top ring ready for gluing.
Bottom ring ready for gluing.
The horizontal ribs. Each one goes at a different level.
