Build your own Wooden Dummy

Body Front View Side View

1x2" 1.5" 1.5"



5 feet


1x2" 9"

9 inches

For example: 28 divided by 4 is 7. I did this by laying a long straight edge along the body while it was on my saw horses. 28" 21" center 7" 14" .Transfering your measurements to your dummy is a little tricky. Mostly because it's hard to find a log that is exactly 9 inches in diameter. I was lucky and it came out to be 28". Straight Center Line Second: Find the center point. Measure the circumference of your body. Divide your measurement by 4 to come up with quater marks. so I made a mark every 7 inches around the body. I then connected the dots. Where the lines intersect is the center point. First: make a center line.

Mark how long your dummy arms will be and adjust the distance between the arms until they are the desired distance apart. Distance to outside of body. Transfer the the location of the centerline marks to your dummy body.75" on my dummy Transfer the location of the centerline marks to the body of your dummy. These marks should be equal distance away from the center line.Third: Find the angles of your arms. Attache the protractor to your dummy body at the center point. Make a protractor out scrap 1x2s. Adjust arms of protractor to the desired arm width 8.5" on my dummy Length of arms 11. center . When i made my protractor I just used a long enough screw to go through the protractor and into the dummy center point. Draw a center line down the center of each arm of the protractor.

Center Line for Arm hole. Center Line for Arm hole. These marks should be equal distance from the center line. . center Extend the marks down the length of the wooden dummy body.These are the marks transfered from your protractor. When you transfer the markks for your arm holes make sure that you center the top arm holes on these lines. You now have the correct angle to drill you arms holes. double check just to make sure and then you can start drilling and chiseling. After you get all your makrs in place.

Get the measurements from the plans on this page: http://www.com/news/dummy/ B D A A A. 2x3 D. I used wood glue and screws to attach all the pieces. 1x3 B. All other cuts are at a 45° angle. only the two smaller 1x3s actually have a 15° angle cut on one side. The knee angle of the leg is 45° and the leg is inserted into the dummy at a 15° angle. D B Step 3. So. 1x3 C. C A B Finished leg. A D C Step 2.wckfc.Building the leg with an overlaping joint: You will need 1 8' 2x3 and 1 8' 1x3. . 2x3 B C Step 1.
