Recreating the automata head from MDF templates

Having cut out the layers of the head, the middles were cut out so tha when they were stuck back together, they would have a convenient void inside for putting things in

Next these were glued back together. This was done in two parts. The front (face) section was recreated from the foremost 4 layers, and the rest of the head (back) from the rest of the layers:

This shows the stepped effect of the recreated head. This could be improved by using much thinner layers, for example ceiling tiles.
