How can I make servo brackets like those on LynxMotion Robots out of wood and plastic? I want to try to make a small biped robot.

For example, I just slapped together a pan & tilt bracket out of scrap wood, screws and hot glue because I needed one "now and cheap"
I hot glued the one servo horn to another servo and the 2nd horn to the cam body... holds great and easy to disassemble. (I also use heavy duty glue)
Eventualy I want to make a simple arm and will probaly use thinner plywood and such to mimic store bought brackets for the same reason as my P&T... too darn broke
Its 50 shipped. Really good deal
@jeffmorris these are the same style as lynx. I've used all lynx and after trying several bracket options I would say this is the easiest cheapest way to do your first bi ped . Then if you want to make something more complicated later just use your same servos.
Can you, or another, explain the decision and reasoning behind choosing one servo over another?
Fyi servos are rated by speed , torque, and degrees of motion. Most are 90 degrees which is 45 degrees in either direction.
Depending on your CNC router, and probably more the bit type, I think plastics should be fine as long as they don't melt. And aluminum can actually be cut fairly well with most fine wood blades... not as sure about side cutting bits, but go slow on a test piece with a bit you don't mind testing with. DIY brackets are one thing where having a 3D printer can come in very handy
Ebay has gone heavily commercial... stick within the USA (for starters), with highly rated stores and always pay with PayPal. You should not have problems... or at least you can get you $$ back if you do via PayPal. Also watch the shipping costs... some sites pad their "low" price with high shipping.
