The Yoga Robot 9000 has official been renamed the Asana Bot (for now)—asana is a sanskrit word for posture that is used generically in yoga.
I choose walnut for the head and body and baltic birch ply for the arms and legs, to give a nice light-dark contrast—inspired by Grotesk’s “A Bigger Big Poppa”.
I experimented with gluing up baltic birch scraps at different angles, but ultimately ended up using single 3/4” scraps for the first few prototypes.
I definitely want to experiment with this more down the road to see what kinds of patterns I can produce in the legs and arms. I think it’s also worth trying some glue ups with acrylic inside.
Legs and arms were cut with round 1/8” bit, body and head were cut with flat bits from 1/32” up to 1/4”
Getting the CAM right on the body/head combo was super important, and I eventually cut job time from 2.5 hours to just over 1.25
