I am looking for some advice on an upcoming project. I’m considering making a 18-20in R2D2 out of wood and curious if anyone out there has ever attempted. I am considering starting in the next 30 days. I just recently made a LegoMan and it was a very challenging and thus rewarding project. Im located in Indiana and have many resources at my disposal.

I believe the head , body , and arms are pretty straight forward but have no idea on how to put the embellishments onto the model.

If anyone has some advice on where to start please share.

This photo I found on google images and it sort of my inspiration:

Please provide some feedback.

Gary from Indianapolis.

That would be a fun project.

Depends on how complex you want to go. Inlay would be the most difficult, and most impressive, but I like the rich blue. Inlay or paint.

There is an official club for droid builders. They always have a room full of their droids at the Star Wars conventions.

I even saw some made out of wood.

Have your say...
