Construction detail

The construction detail: On this puppet, the head and both arms move, so the three bolts with Nylock nuts hold them on. This allows for adjustment of tension over the life of the puppet. (The front side of the bolt & screw have a flat and a decorative washer on them)
The handle (the black bar) is held on with a screw going through the plastic board into a CPVC 90 degree bend with a small piece of dowel in it on the back --top and bottom. The bar is held out far enough from the back of the panel so that fingers can easily grasp it.
