For those of you who are new to this location, this site is all about turning a dead animal into a
clean set of bones and assembling those bones into a complete skeleton.

It is also an introduction to myself, a thirty-year veteran of professional skeleton building. It is also
a blatant advertisement for a series of ten Bone Building manuals I've written.

These books are a series of manuals explaining how to clean, prepare, and articulate different
animal skeletons in a simple step-by-step manner. Each manual is suitable for enthusiasts, teachers
and/or students desiring to do a museum quality skeleton on a limited budget.
Step by step guides for the preparation and articulation of animal skeletons.

Harbor Porpoise Project
2013 Marine Mammal Camp - Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies
This was a "kid" project
. The skeleton was put together with the help
of 4th to 6th graders. It was done during a five-day camp at a
wilderness nature center (boat access only), near Homer, Alaska.
