Wing Chun is traditional Souther Chinese Kung Fu style and form of self defence. The dummy is used for training and practise.
Pillar is 170cm, 21cm diameter chestnut. The base is 4cm oak boards,dimensions 80×60cm, fastened together with pillar with 10mm screws. Upper crossbars I made of walnut, glued of three layers than turned.Hole dimensions – 32mm. Bottom angle crossbar I made of walnut -oak combination. Square profile of that crossbar enters pillar some 4cm, tp prevent rotation. I widen that rounded hole and made that access with straight router. Finish non glosy laquer and crosbarrs – wood oil.

Wing Chun.... The dummy is used for training and practise….

Missus says I’m a dummy and worthy of being slapped around… but not as slim as your chucken wings… however, I do have one of those droopy lower appendages, though nowhere as “outstanding” :-{( .

I think I’d rather face the trSN version than the maj’s… hopefully yours has already been robbed off his manhood and humiliated enough not to fight back!

Interesting project Ivan. I think it is strong enough to take the abuse.

I’m old enough to remember butcher shops with sawdust on the floors. Anyone else remember those days? It could be a slipping hazard but I did notice a broom close by. Nice work out post. I’ve seen them used.

This is really cool Ivan. Are you a practitioner? If so, we’re brothers. I have been a student and teacher of the Eagle Claw system for 41 years.

Your Wing Chun dummy is excellent! Shows great craftsmanship.
