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.
