N has hands

My shop assistant now has hands!!

keeping true to my original materials list, i created the hands from larger metal axe helve wedges.

this shot is to give a general view of the hands in action.
i feel good about the general proportions of the fellow and his parts.

the wedge only needed 4 holes to accept the 6 strand cable being used for the joints. 

the idea is that the cable can easily be changed when needed.
i am also quite partial to the look of the cable just weaving through the hand.  

 there are just enough fingers to be a practical gripper and give a sense of gesture. 

next step is to sort out a gallows for the actual stop motion animation.
