Make Your Own Mini Robot
Make a cross on the bottom of the head to mark the centre. In the centre of the block drill a 2 cm(ish) deep hole using your 6mm drill bit. Do the same with your body block, then pop the dowel in the holes to connect the two blocks together.
This is a bit fiddly - It’s best to drill the holes before you cut the wood. Ideally you would clamp the dowel to a table edge before you drill it but if you don’t have a clamp, hold the dowel steady with some plyers while the you slowly drill through. Then cut the arms into 3cm lengths with the hole at one end. Screw in the arms to the body.
Get your chucky dowel and cut a few feet and glue it on to the robots body. Go over the wood with some fine sandpaper to take off any splintered bits and finally draw the face on in pencil and paint over with a little brush and a bit of acrylic paint.
Well done - you have a robot!
