Put this together in a day and a half. The extra half day was only because I had to come in for dinner. All the wood is from 1 pallet. I used the standard build for the arm and head. There is a dowel in the head side, that goes into the skull which allows some freedom of movement. I plan on giving it an internal light and motion sensor. The bicep has a length of pool noodle on it to give it a little girth.

I figured I needed a lightweight hand so the arm would not slow down, so I took a flower shaped pool noodle, carved off some pieces, hot glued the segments, and put together a hand. I dipped it in grey primer to give it a coating, and it's still drying.
