A couple of years ago I kept seeing little block robots and wanted to make some for my kids, nieces, and nephews.

They are simple builds really only needing a drill and a saw, some CA glue, and paracord.

Use your creativity to determine the size of the hands, feet, head, and body.

I chose to give the robot a mouth using the table saw and countersunk some eyes.

I drilled a hole all the way through the center of the head, and across for the arms.

The legs go in about 1cm and I drilled about halfway through the hands and feet.

Using CA glue you and activator if you like you can glue the feet and one hand.

Give the leg holes on the body a bit of CA glue and insert the paracord legs. the activator will set the glue immediately.

When doing the arms I would recommend sliding the paracord all the way through and then glue the other hand, you don’t need to glue the arms into the body but if you do, slide the arm out a bit and then add some CA glue and pull the arm back in.

Keep the head/neck paracord longer than you need, once you glue the head on you can finish the cord off however you like.

Optionally if you don’t want a knot on the top of the head then don’t drill all the way through.

Using a lighter or a torch to clean up the ends of the paracord isn’t needed but makes life easy!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
