Just finished up a really simple Leering Skelly. Saw these cedar half barrels at Menards for $22 with rebate and had to make something with it. I used the vinegar-water-steel wool-instant coffee mixture to weather the barrel. This is a typical Pose-N-Stay Skelly, the spine is really thin so I used a 3' length of 3/8 threaded rod up the spine. Motor is a cheap 5 rpm synchronous. The lantern was modified with yellow and orange flicker LED's.

J-Man - well done! Have you run the motor for very long yet? Just wondering how it'll do in the long term turning your skellie... I'm using a similar one to turn my giant skull up in my front yard trees, but am not sure how long it'll go for (primarily concerned about the drive shaft bearing).

So far so good. The motor should hold up well, there's really no strain on it. If it does crap out, it was only $4.
