Today, I went to Lowe's and picked up the pieces for my gas pipe experiment. A couple people have PM'd me and asked about my new method, but all I will say for now, is that it's basically reinventing the wheel. I don't want to post any photos until I am certain it will work.
Tomorrow I will work at starting to fill the edges of the legs, and use a chisel to open up the pockets under the shoulders.
That's all for now folks!
