Hello My Name is Darth BoB

Something kinda different with this project. I needed to make some shoulders for a mannequin head. This is for a project dealing with sound testing. So for the shoulders I used cardboard to determine the shape then moved on to thick draft board. After getting it all cut and glued together I used a sheet of insulation foam to fill the gaps in the wood and sanded to fit. A few coats of black paint and done. The gap under the neck was filled with a 3D printed part from my Makerbot printer. Finally he needed a name, because why not? So he is Darth BoB.

Especially here, the drape of the shoulders is very evocative!

You sure came up with a new one! Love it when a Glowforge gets used for innovative things.

Wow, turned out great!

Got to admit that you had me on a different track at first.
I was sure this was going to be a Darth helmet.
I suppose I took all the clues, saw the basic shape, and ran into the weeds all on my own.

End project came out swell. Thanks for the write up.

Nice! Also his name made me think of ā€œI Am Legion, I Am Bob,ā€ the first sci-fi book Iā€™ve gotten my Hubs to read that he actually liked. :blush:
