Here is my Tree / Pumpkin singing face. I built 3 of these.

I used 1/4 rod

This is the jig I built for the assembly. I also made jigs for the eyes, mouth "O" and Star.

Good job, I like the concept!
Very efficient!
Can't wait to see them in a sequence lit up.

I really like these! I like the duel purpose of them. Hope you don't mind but I'm going to have to copy these for my display. Awesome job!

Very clever! If you have a showing off video of this I'd love to see it.

The tree is 6' tall and 5' wide, I have a drawing. Can you open Autocad files?

Here is just the tree frame size. I can send you a complete drawing if you like.

A complete drawing would be great. I can open Autocad. I am very interested in making a couple of these for my 2016 shows.

Hi, not only is it a fantastic idea, you have made great use of it. If you wouldn't mind could you photoshop one of the first photos to show the channels please.

Thanks guys.

I edited my drawings to show the mouth position titles and the pixel count. I used pixels because my whole show is pixels. Also in some of my videos, I make the tree outline alternate colors. You can see all of my videos on my Youtube channel. here is a link to my 2015 playlist (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQabrVnhqFOoNEw_uo7sNKBZZ0vkmpWI0). My videos are not that great I need to improve those for 2016. 2015 was my first year.

Here is how I set mine up in Vixen, it doesn't matter that I used pixel or if you use a dumb strings. Set it up the same in Vixen.

Hello. Beautiful. Do you use à other software to help you to synchronize lip. Or do you use only vixen ? What type of contrôler ? Arduino ? Other ?.

Thank
