I can't see that I'll need a vacuum table, but I might for this project. But my brother is building Snow Trooper armor. So I put this vacuum forming table together for him today. We'll test it out soon.
Got it in my head to build an R2D2--I've loved Star Wars since it came out and I''ve got a D-I-Y maker ethic, so it was a pretty obvious project. This blog documents the whole build, and now that the R2 is done, it includes public appearances, parts construction, new projects, modifications, and tweaks. I learned a lot from the builders who did this before me. I hope this blog does the same for others who start the project.
