    Shoulder mold in less than an hour

    Well, I made this for my custom, but I might just use it for my Boba
    Its made out of MDF and shaped it with a hand held belt sander.
    This just shows the steps it took to make this and vac-form it.

    Tubachris85x , thanks for getting me off of my rump and inspiring me

    Let me know what you think guys and gals.

    On with the pics...

    Wow, I inspired someone to do something??????? This is new to me, lol, thanks. You did a good job on that mold too. I guess with that one mold, you can see how making it that way can take awhile. You gave me a better idea now of making the mold a bit taller, I should have done that with most of my molds.

    I see that Nichrome wire in the 4th pic, man that stuff is a pain to measure correctly

    Very nice looking shoulder bell. You should make another MDF positive and do a couple at a time. Bet you could sell them.

    I've got a small vac box I built still sitting in the shed - never used. This makes me want to go haul the thing out and see if I can get it rigged up. Hmm. Seems to me we just retired an old vacuum cleaner...

    Nice job on the sculpt and the pull.
