working with wood and making patterns

I used this process years ago to make a foot, now I've made this articulated neck and it's the best way to make something in wood wend you're not so used to sculpting it. It works out as those 3d puzzles.
  1. First things first you need to build a rough version on a softer material as plasticine or polystyrene.
  2. You then slice it up with the thickness of your wood board.
  3. Transfer the drawing onto paper.
  4. Correct any flaws in your patterns.
  5. Transfer to wood and cut it.
  6. Glue it or not depending of the project.
  7. Smooth out the surface.
Here I used this technique to build a neck but it can be used with anything.
