The Trunk – Manufactured from solid Mahogany that has been professionally kiln dried, each piece has been laminated together using an incredibly strong 2-part epoxy resin glue for maximum strength. The square block is then turned on a giant lathe to produce a completely cylindrical body ready for the square mortises to be chiselled out by hand.
The Arms – Each arm is turned from solid Mahogany and then shaped by hand to ensure the correct taper. The two upper arms are offset in the traditional way, which allows the angles to be altered to create a tight or wide centreline to work through and level or off level heights depending on the style of wing chun you practice! The middle arm is centred, and each arm is smoothly tapered to give the authentic look and feel.
The Leg – Manufactured using a six-piece construction technique to ensure the maximum strength can be achieved. We use solid pieces of kiln dried Mahogany, which is laminated together using the same 2-part epoxy resin glue that we employ when making the trunk. Each leg is then carefully rounded off by hand to create a cylindrical shape that ensures there are no sharp edges to kick or press the shin on. The leg is oversized to fit the tallest setting so will need to be cut to the desired height.
The Stand – PAGODA’S uniquely designed height adjustable wooden dummy stand is essential in making sure that the dummy is positioned to the correct height according to each practitioner’s measurements. The design allows the height to be adjusted by simply moving the bolts up and down in the pre-drilled holes. The stand is made entirely from the same premium solid Mahogany as the rest of the wooden dummy.
The Finish – Every part of the dummy is sanded to a glass like finish and then sealed with a high grade clear lacquer to ensure maximum durability. Our Wooden Dummy is stained to a warm, light colour, and is produced to a standard that is equal to a quality piece of furniture and looks just as good in the house as it does in the gym.
