Building Wood Armatures

For all you newbies out there who want a taste of ball and socket armature but can't afford a metal one. This wood armature uses dowels and beads you can find in any craft/ hobby store. The beads are attached to the dowels with carpenter's glue. Masonite plates are strengthened with several coats of carpenter's glue. These pieces are then strengthened with urathane -with many coats applied. This armature obviously is not as long lasting as metal type but will last for a 5-10 min. film. Tightening is required and individual parts easily replaced. If you have power tools materials will cost a wopping $ 5.00 Canadian!! Posted by Picasa

Thanks for that! Grant, Is there a reason you don't use squares of metal flashing for the pressure plates?
