Default Meet Larry

Larry is finally of my work bench.
Larry said HI
I made Larry to help entertain the kids at Christmas.
This year we have four family's staying for three days at our hobby farm. Plenty of kids big and small !!
He should be easy to fix if one of the brats gets a bit rough.
Larry is just under 18" tall made mainly from pine and has a quick coat of shellac. Finding the 3/4"wooden balls was the hardest bit. While I was at it I also ordered some 2"balls so I can make him a big brother/sister after new year.
Photo No2 has Larry sitting on a cucumber which I grew in my vegie patch.

Merry Christmas to all
John T

Welcome to the forum Larry lol. John that's interesting how you made the joints . I have a full size terminator and need to make posable arms . Your idea may work on a 1:1 scale

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Great minds think alike, John, and yours beat me to it. I've been thinking about building a Larry-type character myself although mine was going to be smaller. I like the size of yours and may have to make one like it. Larry is really well done and looks like a fun guy. Glad you shared him.

Thanks Oliver I look at all your projects with envy the workmanship is something for me to inspire to. Larry is a quick build and quite rough in places. He is a lot of fun and with different poses gives of a lot expression. I sit him on my shoulder cross legged with his arm resting on my head, my wife calls me an idiot "I think she likes us"

Hi Rick.
I remembered the basic idea from YouTube years ago.
Then I had to put in a bit of work to get the proportions correct.
This diagram I found on the net was of great assistance, I have attached it. Hope this helps.

Hello and welcome Larry...

...and a Merry Christmas to you, the family, and Larry.

Great job, John,

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
